The ctrl-alt-f1 trick is a linux only thing. Solaris doesn't have separate terminal screens like that. You can open terminals in CDE by right clicking your desktop and choosing tools|terminal, but they open in a separate window in CDE, not as a full screen like the virtual terminals in Linux do.

It's not a Linux only thing.
SCO Unixware and *BSD have that multiscreen switch thing too.
I don't know about Solaris, never used it.
