Where possible, I even prefer 'links' over lynx.
lynx (and links) are both valuable tools when it all goes horribly wrong. when x wont start and nothing seems to be working right, you can come and browse linuxquestions.org in lynx, just to reassure yourself that its not just you going insane.
i'm kidding, but lynx (and more often these days, links) is one tool i would never be without.
Any text tool like vi, lynx , mc,emacs , etc. is good to know where you use a unix/linux system :
- when you only have a ssh access and have to perform some tasks
- when you have to repair a system
