    Actually quite easy...

    At the login screen, instead of typing your user name, type >console and it will boot into text mode, without any GUI. You'll be asked your login and password, and you're in.

    Looks like Single-User-mode, except that you're not root.

    I don't know how usuable this in practice but it's nice,GLTerminal . It's just an app that gives you a terminal but can emulate old CRT computer screens (white, green or amber text, complete with configurable flicker, brightness and CRT curvature warp) and can go fullscreen. It's not perfect though...

    I put >console as the username and didn't enter a password and it brought me back to another login window where I entered my username and password and then it brought me back to a normal session. Is there something I missed?
