Precisely which "resources" are being wasted?  I guarantee that if you
have upgraded your 386, it won't be worth arguing about.

THat's ridiculous!  Checking my system logs, I can tell you that I have
rebooted my machine since I installed SuSE 6.1 a couple of months ago. I
use X exclusively!  If your machine is dying that frequently, you have
a serious problem somewhere.  Linux just doesn't have to be rebooted - X
or no X!
