Hi @weazel and welcome to linux.org :)

This Forum (Desktop / X) may not attract the input you are seeking if you are looking to compare Linux with Mac OS X (sic).

Better might be at https://www.linux.org/forums/general-linux.143/

Are you a Mac or ex-Mac user? I note from your input in another thread that you are dualbooting Windows 8.1 and Elementary, I hope you like the difference.

With "Desktop / X" - X is the graphical environment used by a majority of Linux Distros. It is provided by the folk at x.org , and is also know as xorg . From the moment you hit the login screen, and thence from the Desktop, you are in an X session.

You can read more at these links

An alternative to Xorg that is becoming popular is Wayland.

Enjoy your Linux.
