Desktop GUI on Ubuntu Server

If you're one of those people who'd prefer to install Ubuntu Server for your server needs but is pretty much stumped on all the command line witchcraft. Heres a quick tip on getting your fix on the GUI life.

Login to your account and just type
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
It will check for the packages which needs to be installed and as you answer yes, it will download it from the net and you'd have to manually invoke to get to the desktop.
startx
