    Darwin x86, newbie needs help!
    hi guys,
    i just loaded darwin on my dell laptop, but im not sure how to use it. when i boot the pc it displays the screen which has a 10 second countdown timer, then auto-loads into a DOS looking shell with just white text on a black background. Is there supposed to be a GUI or MAC looking interface, if so can you please tell me how to get it.

    'pure darwin' is just the kernel, your not going to get any of the GUI except for a terminal. this terminal is probably bash-like, if you have ever used UNIX or Linux or the like. you will have to build Darwin with Aqua, and im pretty sure Aqua is not opensource
