hi victor,

this day i think about code a new interface style, in front of vt, like
haiku or else.
this interface start at the boot time and is between tty and X11.

for this need rewrite an gtk3 library or ncurses library, i don't know.

but this interface will use especially without mouse using, logging
like on ttys and work like hight interface at X11/gnome3

but take the place of vt... i don't know if it's possible and my
competence of coding it too light.

but i think the distinction between ttys/vt and X11/gnome3 is not for
new desktop use. ttys just for server

may be if there this type of interface you find what that you want.

best regard,
