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.

Under DOS, WordPerfect 6.1 and StarWriter 6 were both quite capable, and each had a WYSIWYG editing mode in addition to the text mode UI.

A text-mode PDF viewer which worked for PDF files like Links works for HTML files would be cool. :-)
