That's a silly argument. X may not be essential in your application,
but it is in anothers. For example, how can you do CAD work without
a graphical user interface? You can do programming without a compiler
too if you're keen enough.
This argument is completely unrelated to the real topic at hand,
but if you're going to get involved, at least try to see it from
someone elses' perspective as well.
