Hmm... let's see... things I do on CLI:

Email		[X]
News		[X] (talking about usenet stuff etc.)
Web browsing	[X] (well, lots of it but not all)
IRC		[X]
IM		[X] (centericq rocks!)
Code		[X]
Games		[X] (bsdgames anyone?)
Pr0n		[ ] (not _that_ into ASCII graphics... but HEY! How did that get
in here?!)

But seriously, as you can see, quite a lot can be done effectively on it. I'd
say I'm not alone there.

People belonging to the above category, will look for stability for sure. I hate
it if my last 15 minutes of geniusness vanishes away while vim skips a heartbeat
and for some reason there isn't that .main.c.swap file at all! :D

True, but also give a reasonably troublefree way for people to download a distro
they can trust at any time. There's pretty much nothing that I hate more than
having a very promising, but always just that, tool, of any kind.

I would think they welcome us all, no matter what size we fit. They, since so
far, there's not a single line of my contribution in INX. Hopefully not for too
long. :)
