NLD uses the GNOME desktop (by default) to provide an easy-to-use desktop environment. In this chapter we take a look at the basics of navigating the GNOME desktop including how to use the desktop menus, work with application windows and virtual desktops, and access a command shell to execute NLD command-line tools.

First we discuss GNOME and where GNOME came from. Then we can explore the GNOME desktop in a more hands-on fashion.
