The console has not evolved for a long time, while text requirements
have gone up. At this point a dumbed down text-only X session is
probably the only credible console future (or something that is not X
at all but uses many libraries we associate with apps now).

Non-X-console state is so bad nowadays I don't bother reporting bugs
on it. Even if they are fixed they always reappear the next Fedora
cycle.

Well, people can log in, and people can run commands. As long as that works, where's the problem ? I understand support for foreign characters is going to be a problem, but how does that justify removing the entire thing ?

On what facts do you base that opinion ?

I occasionally run into a Gnome app bug where drag'n'drop "hangs" the desktop (the "drag" never "drops", sort of) where the only way out is ctrl-alt-f1 to mingetty and killall the user-space app. Without mingetty, ctrl-alt-del is the only other option (i.e. loose all unsaved documents).
