   It's only graphic if you tell it to be.  I manage about half a  
dozen Linux systems (for an employer) and none of them have had  
monitors attached to them since they were installed. =)

   But for *real* work, I run Solaris on Sun hardware.  No messing  
around; I have work to do.  My PDP-11s are for hobby stuff...the  
tools for work WILL *just work*, or they will hit the trash.  Zero  
tolerance, zero patience.
