Back in the 1980’s, personal computers did not have a graphical user interface, but instead had users type directly into the console. The assignment was to create an interface/menu, and this does so by recreating a typical 1980’s personal computer interface. I made it in MS paint by typing text in the Fixedsys font, which is not often used and looks archaic. As a computer programming major, I’m fascinated by computer technology, going from huge bulky machines covering walls to portable devices which can fit in pockets, and the 1980’s was an important era for introducing the personal computer, which are now used every day.
