        Nice looking desktop, a generous selection of useful software that can be installed at the click of a button. What I do not see among those is “Terminal” (the equivalent of Windows “Console” or “DOS Box” that gives access to the system command line), one of the main Linux applications I use. I imagine that it is available, as it would be very strange if it were not.

        Windows 7 Professional, SP1, x64 Group W (ex B) & macOS + Linux (Mint)
