Hi Michael,
First, welcome to Debian.
All unix-type OS's have 2 levels of interaction: GUI and text-based.
Both are available in Debian (as well as other OS's). The GUI is composed
of usually 2 layers: X Windows and 'windows'-like enviroment like GNOME
or KDE. Goto: http://www.gnome.org or http://www.kde.org to read more
about them and http://www.freedesktop.org for X info.
Second, this list is for people discussing things related to the Debian
Project and is not used for debian 'user' questions. join the
debian-user list for any further questions. Goto http://lists.debian.org
to sign up.
