The @kbd{C-x 5 0} (@code{delete-frame}) command never deletes the
last frame. This prevents you from losing the ability to interact
with the Emacs process. Note that when Emacs is run as a daemon
(@pxref{Emacs Server}), there is always a ``virtual frame'' that
remains after all the ordinary, interactive frames are deleted. In
this case, @kbd{C-x 5 0} can delete the last interactive frame; you
can use @command{emacsclient} to reconnect to the Emacs session.
The @kbd{C-x 5 1} (@code{delete-other-frames}) command only deletes
frames on the current terminal. For example, if you call it from an X
frame, it deletes the other frames on that X display; if the Emacs
process has frames open on other X displays or text terminals, those
are not deleted.
