Does anybody use Org in a non-graphical environment?
Is it possible to make the (all) keys work?

Look at section 15.9 in the Org manual, "Using Org on a tty". There
are alternative keys for all the keys that don't work on a terminal
(on GNU/Linux, there is effectively no difference between a virtual
console and a terminal).

One other thing you might consider would be to run a minimalistic
graphical environment. Instead of using a desktop environment like
Gnome or KDE, use a simple window manager like openbox, or a tiling
window manager like dwm, awesome, or stumpwm (my favorite). If the
only application you're going to be running under X will be emacs,
there's no reason not to use dwm for your window manager, actually.
