That's an interesting comment - why would an operating system need an
integrated X11/Aqua/Windows style GUI? I think by and large, the majority of
operating systems do not actually have an integrated GUI like that... in
fact, Linux certainly doesn't (hence the ability to swap out X11/Xorg/etc)
nor does OSX (since I can do much the same there). I think only a few like
Menuet and Windows Vista onwards have this.

Not being critical, but it certainly is a very different way to look at an
OS than I'm used to (especially since I run typically almost entirely text
only, using a GUI only for Firefox, Rhythmbox, RDC, and tons of terminal
sessions really)
