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.

Well, watching movies and all such is handy when you're still compiling everything...since I use Gentoo, I usually emerge links and mplayer, and surf the web or watch some movie while X is still being compiled. It's really very handy, IMHO.
