Indeed it does have a graphical interface via the X Window System; then
there are different "desktop environments" you can use like GNOME and
KDE.  They include email clients, file managers, web browsers, games,
spreadsheets and such. If you're interested in installing

There are links to the potato and woody installation manuals, as well as
information about supported hardware and available IRC channels and
mailing-lists for help.

Good luck!
