Poll: Is console alive?

GPM is no more mantained, as the author thinks console is obsolete.
Is really the text console condemned to death and oblivion?

I do almost everything, from programming to music playback, under text 
console, as i find it far more flexible and efficent than a GUI like X.
Moreover, i find programming the console framebuffer much easier than 
programming graphic under X, and about ->10 times<- faster (even if it 
depends greatly on the hardware beneath it)

Come on, console is one of the greates power unix has over windoze!
