I modify the gmenu2x to respawned just for end users and make the "GUI" env in nanonote

for those people don't like the 'gmenu2x' can disable it by run one program in gmenu2x.
  like 'ash', it's will exit 'gmenu2x' goto 'ash', then we can switch to Ctrl + Alt + F2.

another option disable it in /etc/inittab :).
