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.

The question is not if it's possible not to use a GUI, the real question is if I want NOT to use GUI.

And the answer is no. We are in 2007 dude, I don't see any good reasons to use my computer like 20 years ago.
