A typical Linux server runs in a command line interface (CLI) environment,
preloaded with bare essential tools needed to install and configure various
headless services. Compared to a full-blown GUI desktop image, such a
minimal setup is advantageous in terms of security, resource consumption
and speed.

If you are used to GUI-based environment, however, you may wonder whether
there is a GUI for Linux server. A typical Linux desktop environment like
GNOME, KDE, etc. will probably be too resource-heavy for what it's worth,
and not as secure simply because there will be more code subject to
potential security vulnerabilities
