Re: Are you a Linux geek, using Linux without X?
Feels good to admit it Come on it's alright, you can use X. GUIs are a tool; I don't have one on my server because it's unnecessary, I have one on my desktop because it makes day-to-day computer usage much easier, I can even run a terminal or multiple terminals from within my GUI if I want, with konsole or any other terminal emulator.
I have to admit most of the time I use X, but that's because I find it easier, I still do most of my things from a terminal, but I enjoy being able to see multiple windows working at once way too much to give up X completely.
Thank you. Although I do know more about Linux than anyone I know, which makes me feel like a bit of a geek. I don't really like the term 'geek' though - I prefer tech-head!
