It is, you know. > I do run windows Why? > and real text screen UNIX is not aviable anymore. Sure it is. I mean, there are even text-only distros, such as INX: http://inx.maincontent.net/ ... and ADRIANE, a spinoff of Knoppix: http://www.knopper.net/knoppix-adriane/index-en.html But you can install Debian, Ubuntu or openSUSE in text-only mode with no GUI if you wish. All the console-mode tools you could want are available: web browsers, email and chat clients, twitter clients, music players, etc. Go the whole hog and install Slackware and go back to installing from tarballs if you wish. I'd probably suggest openSUSE as the YaST admin tool works in text mode, so you don't need to know your way around a hundred config files -- YaST will do that for you. -- Liam Proven • Profile: https://about.me/liamproven Email: lpro...@cix.co.uk • Google Mail/Hangouts/Plus: lpro...@gmail.com Twitter/Facebook/Flickr: lproven • Skype/LinkedIn: liamproven UK: +44 7939-087884 • ČR (+ WhatsApp/Telegram/Signal): +420 702 829 053
