Unable to obtain windows-like desktop
Brand New to Linux Today.
I have installed Debian Linux using a basic CD and then using the HTTP option to instal remaining packages. At the end of the installation process I am prompted for my user ID and password and I enter these (successfully) and am taken to a command prompt. However, I heard that Linux had a windows-like interface but don't know how to get it up and running.
Do I need to install further packages?
Re: Unable to obtain windows-like desktop
For your first linux distro, DO NOT use debian, etc. Use an easier distro. My first distro was suse and it was so easy that I was encouraged to learn more about linux. For a windows-like distro i recommend xandros. debian isn't n00b friendly.
