Graphical user interface

The Xorg project provides an open source implementation of the X Window System – the foundation for a graphical user interface. Desktop environments such as GNOME, KDE, LXDE, and Xfce provide a complete graphical environment. Window managers offer alternative and novel environments, and may be used standalone to save system resources. Display managers provide a graphical login prompt.
