A graphical user interface (or GUI, often pronounced "gooey"), is a particular case of user interface for interacting with a computer which employs graphical images and widgets in addition to text to represent the information and actions available to the user.
GUIs are important parts of many operating systems, where the user uses a mouse and pointer to move an on-screen object, click on icons and other objects.
GUIs were introduced in reaction to the steep learning curve of command line interfaces (CLI), text-based user interfaces requiring commands to be typed on the keyboard.
The Amiga computer was launched by Commodore in 1985 with a GUI called Workbench based on an internal engine which drives all the input events called Intuition, and developed almost entirely by RJ Mical.
Like most GUIs of the day, Amiga's Intuition followed Xerox, and sometimes also Apple's lead anteceding solutions, but pragmatically, a CLI was also included and it extended dramatically the functionality of the platform.
