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.

When I edit a Makefile in Midnight Commander's built-in editor, leading tabs are shown as BIG RED BLOCKS.

Very hard to miss. :-)

True, that would be nice. :-)

On the mainframe side I ended up writing a compiler results parsing program that would spin through the rather lengthy results output of our FORTRAN compiler and highlight key information (white is normal, grey is caution/warning, red is Bad Stuff).

I may do the same thing under Solaris here. The gcc compiler spits out a ton of crap. :-)
