Why is everyone stuck at the console of one particular workstation?  The 
point of a multiuser, networked OS is that you can have as many logins 
as you want from wherever you want.  I almost never log in directly at 
the console of a linux box unless it is broken - or at least the one 
where my desktop sessions run.
