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.

TWIN is nice, tried that long ago.
(X)Emacs also can be used to multiplex apps... you can split the screen and run multiple shell buffers inside it.
Of course its terminal emulation is a bit lacking so not all apps will work (vi won't :p).
