I downloaded the Debian Linux app on my computer from the Microsoft app store however the only thing that appeared after entering my username and password was the command prompt. I understand that Linux is mostly operated using the CLI, however I was expecting some type of virtual machine box that will allow me to access the new operating system. Or should I ditch the whole app and try installing the platform from the original www.debian.org and create a partition in my Windows disk. I fear that I may lose all my data in my current Windows OS if I do that which is why I'm wondering if I should proceed. Although I'm going to take a guess that it gives the option of running either Linux or Windows when booting up the computer.
