I use the window manager screen, and can have 256 windows (more, actually),
split or not, with cutting and pasting between them, and titled, at my
fingertips. No X, no mouse, no GUI.

Per tty.

Don't feel bad though, it's amazing the number of people that don't know
about screen, which is, to my knowledge, the only window manager that doesn't
need the X libs and such.

As for "anything [useful] extra the GUI can do" , well, you name it and
I can do it faster and cleaner without the GUI, and change the entire 
configuration of my desktop on very short notice.

	Life is the strangest thing I've ever done.
