i don't use GUI. it takes a lot and gives nothing. i use both text and 
graphic (X) based apps and no gui. i use fvwm2 with my config, there are 
plenty of nice other wm's good for that.

i need a productive system, no "graphical user interfaces" etc, that let 
me actually concentrate of what i have to do!

Most of You needs the same, but after years of aggressive 
marketing/brainwashing think that "graphical user interfaces", "desktop 
environments" etc. are important.
The most stupid but popular claim is that complexity is good.

this make people work many TIMES slower, both 100% window$ users and 
95-99% unix users.

all of this is needed to convince people that every 1-2 year they need new 
"modern" computer and the old is worth nothing. and people believe in it.

their problem, not mine :)
