Or the user can't possibly maintain the server without a GUI 
interface......

I have FreeBSD servers that have 30 ports installed.  My desktop has 714. 
It should be up to me what runs on the box, not the manufacturer.  I don't 
need a ton of cruft to run a single application that does some sort of 
task for me.  Even the webservers I maintain have less than 60 ports 
installed.

Paul Schmehl, If it isn't already
obvious, my opinions are my own
and not those of my employer.
