Don't confuse the OS with the GUI. The GUI is the clothes on the person. The OS is the basic character of the person. Many on this thread are forgetting the difference.

Since you can't run Windows without the GUI, there really is no difference.

This is in stark contrast to unix.   While Jim may be picking and rejecting stray linux distributions based on these first GUI impressions, I rarely leave the shell.  Very rarely run X.   It's about the kernel, about the package system, about the memory utilization, and the tools it provides.
