 The 1st thing you should know is that the Darwin-OP has a Ubuntu operation system(OS) on it. The Darwin-OP usually comes with Ubuntu 9.10 OS installed on it. But in the DASL lab its quite common that the Darwin-OP'​s OS is updated. It matters as to which version the Darwin-OP has, since the 9.10 version has a GUI(Graphical User Interface), which means you can use your mouse to click on icons and use GUI to write programs. But you really dont need to use the GUI much. You will mostly be using the Terminal to run your programs. If you have higher versions you might not have a GUI which means after you power on the Darwin you will open into a terminal and you have to navigate around with the terminal. ​ The 1st thing you should know is that the Darwin-OP has a Ubuntu operation system(OS) on it.
