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.

White text? Wow -- I've been using colorized tools even on the Solaris development servers here. I color code my PuTTY screens depending on the server I'm logged into, I use color ls, Midnight Commander, syntax highlighting in vim, etc.

There's no reason at all to force yourself into a monochrome world, even at the command line. :-)
