    Yes. cplay I liked, but moc is better for me. zgv is okay, but I like fim best.

    I compile my own version of mplayer that only supports framebuffer output, which makes it considerably lighter and faster.

    That's screen running with the vertical split patch. The "taskbar" is screen's hardstatus line.

    That's screen again, actually. mplayer will paint the video image in the upper left corner of the framebuffer like that. Knowing where it will fall, I just partitioned that portion of the screen off, and used the outside area for other programs.

    No, but I have before. I do most things on command line, but I like having a graphical web browser.

    I think that elinks -g via sdl / directfb, without Xorg should be possible, for surfing

    Re: Are you a Linux geek, using Linux without X?

    when im sitting in class and typing notes, i dont use X since it's a lot brighter and i dont want to bother other people in the lecture hall...and it's a lot less battery intensive so i never have to worry about finding a power supply in the room. but besides that, i always use X when im at home or anywhere else.
