The console-image drops you off into a console on tty1 [you need to ssh into 
the device to do something meaningful with it] -- no display server nor 
window manager included.

The illume image contains an X-server and the illume window manager.

For reference, we regular build fso-zhone-images as well, these include some 
GUI toolkits and the Zhone testing application, which -- if noone adopts 
it -- is going to be phased out.
