I haven't looked at mplayer. Do you mean that I can watch a DVD on a
serial console? I use lynx when I don't need frames or images and dillo
when I do. I only use firefox when I need java or images + https. I've
tried some other text-based browsers supposed to do frames and stuff but
I couldn't get them to work. The man pages said the interface was
intutitive. I couldn't even intuit the help.
I remember when I was first transitioning from OS/2 to linux. Mostly, I
ran WordPerfect (the text-mode version) that had a preview screen. It
took me a while to get used to lout, make a ps, then launch gv to
preview it. Once I get my etch box all set up I'll try Lyx but
primarily as a way to learn latex.
