  1. Evaluate the user dialog strategies used by a menu-driven interface.
  2. Determine why menu-driven interfaces continue to be popular in the modern computing age.
  3. Suggest at least three (3) strategies for making menu-driven interfaces visually appealing in the modern computing environment.
  4. Suggest alternatives for menu-driven interface design and explain how these alternatives can be designed to eventually replace all menu-driven interfaces.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
