All Unix/Linux distributions come with a GUI.  Some are very windows like, and some are quite different.

Additionally, you can use samba to share your Unix/Linux folders, so you can access them on your windows PC as you would for any other windows network share.

You can script and automate everything from command line and sit back and relax.

gheist, the request is the other way around: want to do anything manually, like Windoze, repeating it again and again manually ;-)
