It's called XFree86 4.2.0 + KDE 3.0.1 ;)

But, if you do stick to the console, there are other ways todo it.  Such
as using GPM if you have a mouse.  Otherwise you could use a screen
session.  One terminal with mutt running.  Another with bash running for
example, and use it's copy+paste functuality, which is built-in.  (midly
annoying to use, but it does work)

Thou, that's mostly a PITA, gimmie X11+KDE3 any day!

Yeah.  Sorta getting use to it.  I think this is the sixth time,
shadowfax has been slashdotted in the last 2y.  It's not so bad anymore.
We have some good hardware and a heck of alot of bandwidth behind us, so
it's all good.
