We have a few thousand RHEL servers, at least 75% of which run Oracle
and 100% are X-less, so you do not need X for Oracle.

If you install Ubuntu Server, it defaults to an X-less install.

If I were to ask my past and present sysadmin colleagues what they
thought of an admin who installs X on a server, the guaranteed
responses would be (with a descending scale of niceness and with
expletives deleted) "a PIA", "an amateur admin", "an incompetent
admin", ...
