GUI

Introduction

HelenOS starts into a graphical user interface, provided a usable graphical output device is found (otherwise it will start into a text console). You can move windows around, close them, resize, etc. using your mouse.

On startup you are presented with a console window (you can type commands there), a launcher window and the task bar, which allows switching between windows.

The GUI also has support for multiple seats.
