Getting Started Applications Deployment

So, the title says it all.
As I didn't find anything on digitalocean related to what systems are to select and to see it I need to put $5...
What systems are there?
I would like or windows or ubuntu(desktop ubuntu, not ubuntu server) because I would need to install some applications that are only avaiable in windows and ubuntu desktop.
So... What systems do you support?

Desktop environments are not included in the droplet choices, however that does not mean you cannot configure and use one.

Here is a great guide setting up tightvncserver and xfce on Ubuntu.

Sorry no windows options.

Be aware that running a desktop environment will increase the load on your server.

In this guide, we will be setting up VNC on a Ubuntu 16.04 server and connecting to it securely through an SSH tunnel. The VNC server we will be using is TightVNC, a fast and lightweight remote control package. This choice will ensure that our VNC connection will be smooth and stable even on slower internet connections.
