Am a bit confused by the terminology:

Don't "conosole displays" usually run *under* x11?

So, what *is* a "console display"?  What makes a window (er, frame)
a console-display rather than something elsed?

Myself, I'm using a sunblade-100, solaris-9, CDE I think it is,
and am using a "dtterm".  Where does that fit into the vocab?

Now, I can choose something called a (the?) "conosole", which
seems to me to be just another dtterm with the *title* of
"console".

Where does *that* fit into this terminology?

Thanks!

David

PS: I "live" in emacs -- start it up when bring up the
machine, and exit it only when about to take down the
machine.

Even have learned how to use cursor-controlling programs
like more (well, not that one, but you get the idea)
from *shell* by simply piping to cat.
