May be yes, may be no. I'm thinking about those computer adepts who
have spent 10-15 years with the Ctrl-Alt-F1 combo, is it so easy to
change a grown habit which is like the "Red = Stop!" paradigma? I'm
thinking also about all those who spend time with different distros,
having to change one of the most common procedures just for Mageia.
I'm thinking of rather new Linuxers who follow advice in documentation
- ALL docs on the net talk about Ctrl-Alt-F1, all generic books like
Linux in a Nutshell or others talk about Ctrl-Alt-F1.

So, my question is whether a second's flickering during startup really
justifies such a strong change?
