Worse, they're becoming the only way some bits of hardware can be used. Like bluetooth. They had excellent commandline support for it then gutted it and left it to rot. How're you supposed to automate that? Why should you need a working X server to use a bluetooth keyboard?
That's mostly what I was trying to say. Thank you for saying it! Smilie

I had to pic FVWM, it is the most lightweight and configurable one I've yet to find.

Started out as a TWM mainiac, and the next choice was FVWM, been stuck there ever since.

Same here... I rarely use a GUI on a unix/linux server.. .and when I do, it is a web-based interface, which is my favorite, so I will select "Other"
