Try installing Oracle products on UNIX/Linux without X. Better yet, try 
doing it on a remote machine on the other side of the world.

While KVMs like a Dell DRAC or Sun LOM, and virtualization consoles help 
a lot, it's nice to be able to "ssh -X" to a remote machine and run that 
installer back to my local VNC server.

If I had a decent X windows implementation locally, I'd use that instead 
of VNC.

X had it's issues. But it's still alive and well - maybe because of Java ;)
