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.

What about screen?

With all this talk about console apps you would think that screen would get a mention. I think of it as a window manager for the console. I can't live without it even on my GNOME Desktop but it is invaluable on my servers.
