The user is created by postgresqlon which one of your programs depend. Its no problem that you have an extra user on your machine, in fact you'll have several such users for various purposes on your computer.

I am no Metasploit expert, but this guide says that it uses PostgreSQL. PostgreSQL, like many other services on Ubuntu (like Apache, nginx, MySQL, nslcd, etc.), runs a daemon as a separate user. This helps in security. Login should be disabled for this user by default (so, no password). The PostgreSQL account shouldn't be visible on LightDM (it should be ...

Postgres is an open source database management system, which Metasploit uses for its database. As a result, during the installation, a new 'postgres' user was created. Because I don't know how Metasploit was installed, I don't know what was set as the password. If the extra user account is bothersome, you can always hide the account using this method.

That is easily fixable if you reconfigure/reinstall the relevant package (in your case it was mediatomb, ...

If I understand correctly, what you want is moving the /home folder to your RAID disk. In that way, users would have a directory (their $HOME directory) in which they could do everything they want. In case you understand not fully how it works, Unix has a standard directory tree, created on installation under the root /. By default, all this is created on ...

Sure. When you log on there is an option to choose the desktop interface you'd like to use. I'm not sure what W7 interface you're talking about, but I'm guessing it's a KDE session with tweaks to make it look like W7. To choose a different desktop interface, first install it. When you go to log on you should see a button near the user name of the log on ...
