    Agreed.

    The most secure servers won't be running X. If you're running X on your server and you're concerned about security, the most secure thing you can do is stop running X. Everything after that is second to none.

    Not a big deal if you start it in runlevel 3...you're not using much in the way of X resources then

    I know lots of guys who install the GUI and use runlevel 3...they can ssh into their machines and start the graphical tools remotely if they want. Webmin, of course, is another option; I don't recommend leaving it on all the time, of course, but it IS very powerful.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
