I’m about to set up a non-root user on a CentOS=7 server that I
control for a friend. It is in his home, so access is local. He’s a refugee from the latest Windows 10 Upgrade. I’d like a suggestion as to which of the several possible graphical desktops to suggest to him and set up for him as his default.
My aim is:
– Allow him to try out Linux as an end-user
– Let him start to feel comfortable with the desktop
– Learn the new idioms for familiar programs and functions
– Give him his own system with root privileges.
