General Unix Would you be able to survive one full day without using the X server? Linux offers us a wide assortment of CLI based tools which use curses and/or framebuffer for functional user interfaces. There is no reason why you shouldn't be able look up stuff online, read your email, look at pictures, watch movies and listen to music as you are trying to configure X.

I used to use the Norton Commander too. Much easier than plain old DOS. I still prefer to use the Midnight Commander in Linux instead of just the command line. And everyone knows that if you use linux, you just have to use the command line at some point.

Back in the DOS days I used the SEA image viewer by photodex to look at any pictures.
