Please direct technical questions to the questions
mailing list, email@example.com.
The list charter for "newbies" doesn't really
allow for technical questions.
The answer to your question, though;
a. Because a base install does not include a windowing
system. Not every computer needs one.
b. --- "install one" ;-)
Have you read any of the Handbook yet?
IIRC, Chapter 5 talks about the "X window system",
which is what you'll want, I expect. (It's generally
what is used in FBSD....)
