[citation needed].

People use multiple workspaces/virtual desktops on a single X display,
multiple windows on a workspace, some of those windows are terminal
emulators, some terminal emulators support multiple tabs and/or panes,
and people use those.


* One can switch from an X display to a Linux TTY with
Ctrl+Alt+F[1-6], and back to X with Alt+F7 (usually).
* One can switch workspaces with a mouse click or a configurable set of keys.
* One can cycle windows in a single workspace with [Shift+]Alt+Tab or
a mouse click.
* One can cycle tabs in a single window with an application-specific
shortcut or a mouse click.
