I guess I'm a bit younger than you. :->
I'm X11 guy, using plain Linux VT only for emergency tasks.
When it comes to speed, well, it doesn't matter.
The machine is fast enough and SlackBuilds are small enough.

In addition, except for scripts/packages directories, no real hardware
(i.e. /dev /proc /sys) is shared, so the SlackBuild can go mad and it
will not hurt me.
