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.

Yes, ask an administrator for example. Imo the console in Unix is more powerful than every X application. I'm really productive without bloatware like KDE/Gnome.
