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.

Life without X is lightening fast. Web content - uhm, good and decent web content - can easily be viewed with lynx or e/links. Writing a letter in nano - nay, I don't particularly need vi or emacs - is a sheer pleasure. Listening to music, burning CD's, do some calculating etc. It's all there - without the baggage excess of X.
