[ubuntu] Ubuntu 14 frozen at "Ubuntu" start screenview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – On an IMB thinkpad that was running Ubuntu 12, I updated to 14 and installation seem to go fine. When it was finally time to reboot into 14 (yeaaa new toy to play with) it stays at the Ubuntu splash screen with the 5 progess dots and just endlessly cycles over the dots, thats as far as it gets. If I hit delete it takes me to the text screen with everything OK. Any suggestions?? (Hardware)

Create Limited Userview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I want to set up a bunch of Xubuntu Desktops where the main user is "limited". Much like a windows "limited" user. They have no way to install new programs, etc. And preferably only be able to run putty or firefox... though that part is a little less important. What is the easiest way? (Hardware)

Aquaero 6 Pro 3 Pin Fan Controlview story

http://hardforum.com – Should a regular 3 pin fan just take off and run when hooked up to the Aquaero fan headers? Mine work with PWM fans, but if I hook up a 3 pin fan, it will not run. I have tried XPSC fans, a GT,and a Coolermaster and Corsair 140mm 3 pin fan. I am running 6 Corsair fans from 2 splitter blocks on outputs 1 and 2. I moved one of the blocks over to 3 and it still worked. (Hardware)
