Why not? This is, what is the problem to run a X server on a server
machine? I understand that it may take lots of resources, so I wont
run KDE to say. But some packages do require (as far as I know) a X
server (Oracle does, if I remember correctly).

Is there anything wrong to run windowmaker? (i mean, security issues,
not just performance issues).

Thanks in advance for your comments!
