I have see X -server on a monochrome display. The X-Server is very flexible and relatively easy to configure. Lots of examples via Google.
The only problem is the monochrome display may not be able to handle the output of modern video cards. I have had two old monitors that works fine on old hardware but has blank displays when hooked up to a modern video card. The reason is unknown to me

I'm working on getting a small VGA monochrome display; since I've
never had such a thing, I need to ask: Is it easy to get a modern X
server displaying nicely on a monochrome monitor? What's the deal?
