Hey, using command line only is not as hardcore as it used to be. I did some fiddleing around with my system, here are a few apps running in console for me:

Web browser:

IRC Chat:

And, with the amount of applications available for console (and directfb specifically), you realy don't need XFree86 anymore:

Movie Player: Mplayer/Xine
ICQ: licq (console plugin)
Web: links2 with -g parameter
TV: Xawtv's 'fbtv' or tvtime run in -directfb mode
Email: too many to count
IRC: BitchX, etc.
