comment Disabling user switching when admin locks screen
gconf-editor changes per-user settings, not global ones. It should only disable user switching for that user.

comment Which UNIX filesystem do you use and recommend for servers?
I have. I used JFS on my laptop when I started using Linux, the reinstalled with XFS after the hard drive died an (unrelated) death. I suffered the catastrophic data loss I describe twice when my laptop lost power, and I finally moved to Reiser3. I have had different problems with ReiserFS (including occasionally having files be readable only by root, but have various permissions including a+rw).

Evan, you might want to look up BtrFS. It aims to do most of what ZFS does, and it's in the kernel since 2.6.29 (not quite finished yet, though.)
