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.

In the same vein as what we're talking about, I just found this article about running everyone's favourite Ubuntu without X. Nice lists of apps.

Awesome link! Thanks!

I have been meaning to try out Ubuntu server edition anyway, although you could do this with pretty much any other Linux distro. Slackware, perhaps?
