How do you define a terminal as a crucial app for any desktop?
Let alone at alpha when the user can always boot into the multi-user
target for a terminal and <ctrl><alt>F2?
Honestly, just in practical terms: it's one of the main things I'd
expect to use in testing a pre-release, and that was the consensus when
we initially drafted that criterion.
Like I said, if you want to propose changing it, please start a new
thread, it'd be nice not to derail this one. This one is about the
proposed test case. We need the test case whatever level the criterion
