Sure it is.

I mean, there are even text-only distros, such as INX:


... and ADRIANE, a spinoff of Knoppix:


But you can install Debian, Ubuntu or openSUSE in text-only mode with
no GUI if you wish. All the console-mode tools you could want are
available: web browsers, email and chat clients, twitter clients,
music players, etc.

Go the whole hog and install Slackware and go back to installing from
tarballs if you wish.

I'd probably suggest openSUSE as the YaST admin tool works in text
mode, so you don't need to know your way around a hundred config files
-- YaST will do that for you.
