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.

"There are always people who will call progress bad."

Maybe because it's true sometimes?

Car manufacturers are not tired inventing cars that do need more and more gas and emit more and more CO2, just to get you from A to B. There are better alternatives. But some people think they need a bulldozer in city traffic.

Good progress?

The SS had "great" progress in murdering people. They did not shoot them because this way got to expensive. They used "modern methods" like Zyklon-B gas insted and raised their "successes".

Good progress?

Not every progress is good, especially if it leads into the wrong direction. "Wrong" can be universal (measured at ethic and moral considerations) or very individual (measured at personal skills, needs, or preference). You are the one to decide which solution fits your requirements best.

Offering choice is progress.

Taking choice is progress.
