You can do a minimal install that will give you just VT's to begin with,
 Ubuntu has some nice screen profiles and has KMS support so you should
get fast switching between your VT's. Ubuntu probably has most that
you'd want to run from all your VT's packaged already, including mc,
ethstatus, htop, irssi, mutt, figlet, ccze, links2 and much more.

In short, you should be able to do anything with VT's on Ubuntu that you
could do on any other decent system :)
