Question: what are the default use assigned to the f1 through f7

i do understand that f7 is gui.

Sometimes also F8.

Gnome (and probably other desktop environments also) only uses F8 when
restarted, and then only due to a bug.  If you perform the "logout"

I would not say that this is a Gnome's problem, but a GDM's one. Well, maybe the wrong behavior is also a problem of gnome, but the important question is: who should run who?

Anyway, you can have multiple DEs loaded, if you [troll]stop using bloatwares like GDM and[/troll] starts using startx. And that's not limited to TT7 and TT8, IIRC. Personally, I can not think about usage for that, except maybe to fool your boss: one TTY with your work, and the other with random stuff :D
But would it be really useful? I have no idea.
