Exactly - nothing much to add. Time to evaluate other distros.
I can think of better reasons to switch distros other than what tty X
is run on.
True, but it's one brick in a lengthy series of stupid and silly
decisions, which have been gradually running down Fedora into this
single-user windows clone it has evolved into.

Are you serious? Really? You must have a very tenuous grasp of OS internals.

Who does this affect?
1) People using the console a lot who also run X (remember, runlevel 3 hasn't changed). Desktop users don't use consoles, server users don't use X (I hope). Only a few species of geek remain. 2) People recovering from X crashes. Bugs. Errors. Things we could be fixing and making not happen rather than accommodating this bizzare F1 fetish.
