I've always used Unix and linux terminals (bash), but i'm used to do so without running x.
For linux i know a "shortcut" which consists out of 3 keys, "crtl+alt+F1-F6", but has anyone came across a similar shortcut or even a way to open a terminal without running x?

With kind regards,

What do you mean running Terminal without running x? OS X does not "run x" in the first place.

If you want to make a custom key combination that launches Terminal.app there is free software out there that can do that.

I think he means X11. The terminal app is located in your utilities folder. You can put it in the dock for easy access.
