They may share some features, but many people use GNU screen for it's "detaching" features.. i.e: useful for multiplexing a single terminal among several users.

But I prefer either misc/tmux or misc/dtach for that.

BSD window and "dvtm" are simply console window managers..

Does it run in console? of coarse it does.. it's part of base, not Xorg.

Why didn't you just test it out? switch into another virtual console while X is running.. type "window".
