Re: X on tty1 in Rawhide/F10

Because you are changing a user interface. What is going to happen when the user switches to tty1 and nothing happens? The basic logic of putting X on tty7 is to get it out of the way. Humans will use the lowest numbered ttys first. Besides breaking existing documentation, including advice on various forums, is not a good idea.
