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.

or maybe probably it's a kind of game. But if 1% of computer users use Linux, I am sure not the tenth part of 1% of Linux users (one thousanth yes) will try this.

But anybody who reads this will instinctively think: yes, Linux for crazy geeks. This article is totally counterproductive and basically useless.

When people post this kind of response to articles like this one, I can't help wondering what they are doing on this site in the first place.

The fare on Slashdot may suit you better. But I find the company more colorful and interesting here.
