A Day Without X

X Server is the backbone for Linux GUI. Every user impigne on X for its day-to-day work. X provides you with everything that you need for Browsing, Chatting, Watching Movies, Using ur favourite s/w to Listen Music.

Just Imagine a "Day Without X Server", using Command Line Interface (CLI) for all your day work. Don't worry there are a lots of CLI based softwares that makes you browse net, chat with your friends, watch movies, etc etc stuffs...

Folowing are a list of CLI based tools that does all tasks which X do.

Web Browsing:
Browsing web pages without X has been a real problem for all the users, especially while using Text Based Browsers which does not support CSS, Ajax. There are a range of decent CLI Browsers available, viz. Elinks, Lynx.

Email:
If you are a gmail user like me, you are in luck. Google has a javascript-less version of their interface which actually works beautifully in Elinks. Another helpful tool is Mutt which supports most mail systems.

Chat:
There are many softwares that lets you chat in CLI. Configuring them is pretty easy too. Few of the chat clients I used were Centericq, Naim. If you are a gmail user then I suggest you to try freetalk. For viewing RSS feeds you 've Raggle for your service. Its basically written in Ruby.

Viewing Images:
zgv
is the console based software that provides you with functionality of seeing images in CLI. The Image quality may degrade a little.


Watching Video:
mplayer
and vlc can be better options to see videos of any format. Be it mpeg, avi, divx, wmv. mplayer provides a big list of options that can manipulate the video. "frame buffer" device is used for playing vids.

Music:
For playing music mp3blaster is a good choice. You can also use cplay
I 'll go for mp3blaster. It is just an amazing tool. Lets you create and load playLists easily, along with a number of options.

Text Editing:
Vim and Emacs -- I need not mention about them. Every Linux user knows about them.

Windows Management:
Yes! you got it right. Its WINDOWS management in CLI. I came accross in some Linux distro. It had a tool called TWIN pre-installed. Its pretty neat and clean. Though working might be bit tricky. TWIN stands for Terminal Windows Management.


Now you can gladly spend a day without X. :)
