"The xinit program is used to start the X Window System server and a first client program on systems that cannot start X directly from /etc/init or in environments that use multiple window systems. When this first client exits, xinit will kill the X server and then terminate."

There isn't a xinit GUI. What there is, is GNOME, KDE, Xfce, LXDE, etc. Choose one and I'll tell you how to install.
