If the linux on windows does not directly support a graphical interface 
then there may be other solutions.

Once upon a time there was an xserver that would run on windows but I 
don't know if such a thing still exists.
But if it does then it should be possible to run up xdm and connect in 
from the windows xserver.

Another possible solution would be vncserver which I do use on a number 
of headless systems.
It is not super fast but works for what I need it for.

It would be interesting to know if these would actually work on linux on 
windows and it would make for a good test of how complete the linux 
implementation is.

Is linux on windows as good(bad) as Wine on linux?
