Hi,to me it seems you expect the toolbar and brushes dock to the left side docked. To achieve this, toggle Windows/Single Window Mode. The tabs on the upper right side will appear when there's more than one image open. To see them simply open or create another file. Don't mind the dark theme of your GIMP vs. the fawn one from the tutorial. That's no error. If you don't like it, you can choose another theme in Edit/Preferences/Theme.
BTW: The subject 'GIMP opening screen' is a bit misleading, because it lets one think of the splash screen with the progress bar. To be more precise, you could for instance use 'GIMP screen after opening a file' next time ;-)
