Today's Linux Disappontments

I was not thrilled with ubuntu GUI, so I downloaded the debian KDE ISO.  It starts up in the shell with no obvious way to start a GUI.  (This is why I am skeptical of Linux.  Almost nothing is adequately documented; unsurprising for a system that makes no profit.)

I am pleased to see that Microsoft has something call Window Virtual PC, which does what it sounds like.  Trying to start it running either Windows 10 or 7 and it complained that I need a 686 version, not x64.  Everything that I have downloaded so far has been 64-bit, without problems.  So I am now downloading the 32-bit versions.
