Does it even (still) exist, a distro without X?


Some distros have version called Core. It will be nice to have PuppyCore that will act only as eg. NAS, web server and etc. It could have even a web interface to launch some stuff or control firewall from other machine.

One thing I keep meaning to do (off-topic for this thread) is to re-write some gtkdialog GUIs in plain dialog,
so that they also work without X.. It's quite easy to make programs that use dialog when no X, and
automatically switch to using Xdialog when X is running ... I did this with Pkgdialog (which is a frontend
to a CLI package manager).

I might start a thread about re-writing gtkdialog apps to separate CLI + dialog apps.. So they can be used without X.
