Re: Reasons to preseve X on tty7



I'm going to agree with the -1.  

Almost all of the "reasons" from the original email boil down to "we've
always done it this way".  

I don't see what the big deal really is.  We'd have this same argument
if someone decided to change the number of getty processes.  I
personally think 6 is too many, but since they don't take up much space,
I don't care that much.

On the topic of documentation:  it should be documented in the release
notes and elsewhere.  The only people that are really going to run into
this problem are people troubleshooting, and if they're worth anything
for troubleshooting, they're going to either know its been changed or be
smart enough to try tty2.
