    Of course not! There would be no Windows w/out a gui.
    For a desktop workstation one needs a gui today. Think of all the commands one would have to know & remember just to get daily average tasks done.

    For a server though, a gui is not necessary and for a production server it is definitely unnecesssary,
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.

    Without a GUI you have a dos/unix screen.
