    no x? am i alone?

    does anyone else use linux in console only and find all cli programs because they are faster than gui programs and because you type faster than you can move a mouse?

    I have a Mac G3 running Debian stable with no gui. I use it for playing mp3's, mpg321, ogg123 and randomplay. The share with the music is automounted via nfs.

    I would, If I could somehow get firefox and globulation 2 without X.

    I know there's links and lynx, but I want the addons, youtube, etc.

    I use only console mode, mutt to elinks, abook, and all other possible available apps. It is great, remote, and un-crashable

    I think we need and the both, and for that reason I choose linux because is the only OS that does it.

    I am familiar with both and I see nothing wrong with using no X if you do what you want better without it. Personally I became familiar with some common tasks on the CLI just in case, and it has come in handy .

    I just use a hybrid gnome-shell with guake, which looks and works great. : )
