I remember the switch to vt was necessary to enable xorg to work; this is also true in NetBSD; they call it DRMKMS.

Copy-and-paste by mouse in FreeBSD double-spaces lines; mouse on console does not work at all in NetBSD.

In NetBSD, I like booting into a 240x67 console; I can work better than with 80x25 or 80x30.
