Unless one has configured the console window to always "stay on top" of
other windows.

... however, I have to move my eyeballs to the center of the display &
type instead of keeping my eyes at the console & typing.

I know this sounds ridiculous, but when you consider a console/terminal
to be as good look'n as a girl, and then you're made to a X window and
forced to type in it, it just feels ridiculous.  Think most folks whom
praise the console Gods, feel the same way.
