UI stands for user interface, the part of a software product the user
interacts with, such as windows with menus, icons, dialog boxes, and so on.
In a graphical product, the term GUI is sometimes used to stand for
graphical user interface.
A UI can be just a a set of commands entered on a command line, especially
in older UNIX products, but more often these days it's graphical.
