If I read this correctly, you would like to set up Linux so that it works more like Windows.
In principle, this can be done for certain things---but I think that it may be easier for you to just use Windows.

Instead of spending time making Linux act like Windows, why not make the investment in **learning Linux**. If you do, things will be much easier later on.

Then why not teach them yourself. I have installed Linux on a few of my friends computers, if they need something doing, they get me to do it. While I am doing it, they like to disappear because they think I am doing some crazy computer stuff that only geniuses can understand, which I'm not. So I make them watch what I do, and explain to them what I am doing, then eventually, tell them to do it while I supervise, and only help when they need it. It is good for them, because not only are they learning how to do whatever they want to do, they are also learning how the Linux operating system works, and then they can feel like geniuses, which they're not.

Why don't you just use windows?
It is a free OS, (cough cough bittorrent cough!!) if you do not have time to learn linux.

The beauty of Linux is not GUI, it is CLI and its infinite ways to accomplish a task. Create a bash script to run the require programs at start up. For Redhat distributions use /etc/rc.local to run scripts after boot scripts have been run. Also browse through the links that is in XavierP signature. The "Linux: RUTE Users Tutorial and Exposition" should give you a lot of information about Linux.

I recommend buy a Linux+ certificate book to help you learn Linux.

Do not run X Window System while a server is running. The reason for this is it will penalize the server. Always run a server in CLI or run level 3.

BTW, please provide correct grammar syntax.
