Now there is https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/snappy/guides/mir-snaps/ to package a single GUI application and bring it up on a snappy system.


Ubuntu Core is a minimal system and has such has no mechanism to display anything from the OS as there is no GUI


Snappy Ubuntu is made for embedded and Internet-Of-Things devices. It has a CLI (command line) interface at best. It's supposed to be a very tiny bare-core Ubuntu,therefore no room for giant desktop environment (a.k.a. GUI).
