Apple Darwin doesnt have a GUI by default. One needs to install X and configure it by hand to get it to work. Then you need to get a window manager such as KDE or Gnome. There are probably tutorials out there to get this working.

Read Above. Use DarwinPorts (MacPorts) or Fink to obtain X11, window managers, apps, et cetera. You don't get any packaging systems by default, nor any compiliers, or X11. You get a base Mach/BSD install, and basic coreutils. That's about it.

Darwin does not have a graphical user interface but it does have a command line interface. You can reach this on any Mac running Mac OS X by doing the following:

1. Open System Preferences and click Accounts
2. If the lock icon is locked, click on it and type your password. It should then be unlocked. Now click Login Options
3. Under Display login window as, click Name and Password.
4. Close System Preferences and log out.
5. It will now bring you to a prompt asking for a user name and password. In the username box, type, ">console" (without the double quotes) and leave the password blank and login.

Mac OS X will now close and you'll be taken to pure Darwin. You then login to Darwin using your Mac OS X username and password. To boot back into Mac OS X, if you haven't logged in yet, getting the password incorrect will bring you back into Mac OS X. If you've already logged in, typing "logout" (without double quotes) at the command prompt will bring you back to Mac OS X.
