An official slightly off topic anouncement

Hey guys,

You talk about graphical user interface (GUI) in Linux being that 
To be honest with you, I have never succeeded in setting up such a Linux GUI 
I was not even able to compile the kernel under speakup and makemenu.
Definitely I am impressed with speakup and Debian in console, but w/o being 
able to build a workable GUI system up, I am still using windows for things 
like internet browsing, email, entertainment, scanning of books, and office 
Now, you experienced wolves of the Linux universe, enlighten me with 
instructions where to go and get what I need to replace the "windblows" 
altogether with a Debian, Suse, Ubuntu... you name it

Many thanks in advance!
