NOTE: CentOS Enterprise Linux is built from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux source code. Other than logo and name changes CentOS Enterprise Linux is compatible with the equivalent Red Hat version. This document applies equally to both Red Hat and CentOS Enterprise Linux.

1.4. Graphical Interface

When you installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux you had the opportunity to install a graphical environment. Once you start the X Window System, you will find a graphical interface known as a desktop similar to Figure 1-15 . Unless you specified otherwise, Red Hat Enterprise Linux installs GNOME as the default desktop. In this manual, desktop-related tasks will first be explained in relation to GNOME. We will come back to the desktop in Chapter 2 Using the Graphical Desktop .

For more information about the KDE desktop, see Appendix A KDE: The K Desktop Environment.
