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.

Why limit yourself? Every day, I use Linux command line, X, Microsoft Windows, PalmOS and a hoard of other electrical and electronic devices.

The usage of the command line is essential, as is the usage of a graphical interface. They are just used for different things, is all. Ever try to write an X script? When last did you use lynx for browsing?
