And yet despite all this, it's working fine.  Really, I have no
problem using my keyboard, managing photographs, scrolling through web
pages, or anything else people have been talking about.  The proposed
solution [possibly] omits a vital feature which sets X apart from
being just another windowing system, and for me at least it will be
far less useful.

live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
