    Being new to Ubuntu for Data Science workloads I have a few initial thoughts:

    1) The picture of the Data Science machine seems to indicate that it has a GUI (gnome in this case). However, it does not actually appear to have a GUI unless I'm missing something... which is possible.

    2) Its on Ubuntu version 16. That's pretty old.

    3) I can't get the RDP connection to work out of the box. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
