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.

If you strip a DE down to just the WM and FM, then what exactly do you get that you don't have with standalone components, like WindowMaker or OpenBox + ROX or Thunar?

I guess KDE/GNOME are not for me either.

There is a huge inflation of the word "bloatware"

Agreed.
