For example? I run Linux and configure everything by command line. I'm
not aware about anything, even not dconf, that requires a GUI. However,
it's possible to not use junk at all. I don't use some software on
what ever OS I use. Even using Gnome doesn't require to use gvfs,
pulseaudio and similar things, let alone that I never ever would use
Gnome or a desktop environment at all, if all I need is a window
manager. What ever OS we are using, each OS requires the user's
self-responsibility. Use the right tool for the task and that fits your
work-flow, taste. I wouldn't use FreeBSD for real-time audio
production, on the PC I'm using Linux for this purpose and now the bomb
drops, for the tablet PC I'm using iOS for real-time audio production.
The tool shouldn't suffer from ideological reservations, it should be
the optimal tool for the task. Btw. somebody mentioned "man", I never
run a Linux without man pages. A lot of claims are just FUD.
