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.

Good point, I was thinking the same thing exactly. If I need to browse the web, look at pictures, etc.. I just go to a desktop OS. The only people who would even bother with this are still living at home watching re-runs of Magnum P.I. and listening to Billy Ocean
