With the advent of KMS (kernel mode switching), framebuffer console is
now the default in many newer kernels, at least for my hardware (a
laptop with an Intel video chip set, and a desktop machine with an
NVidia card).

On the desktop, stty size shows 65 rows by 210 columns, and this is
without my having to change anything.
