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.

KDE/Gnome are not bloatware.
They can run quite smoothly on relatively modest hardware. And they can provide just a nice basic DE if you strip 'em down a bit (window manager, file manager, a few config tools).
They're just not for you, apparently.

There is a huge inflation of the word "bloatware" in software land.
