comment Kernel panic - not syncing: No working init found - also Windows7 dual boot failure after second install!
@LittleByBlue afaik, mounting is usually done by the initramfs. It is perfectly possible for grub to find the kernel/initramfs and load them, but the initramfs to fail mounting the disks and fail to run init.

Boot the USB, mount the partition where you installed Ubuntu, then check if /sbin/init exists (This can be done via Nautilus, I think). If it does, you should check your grub configuration to make sure the correct partition is being passed to the root= parameter. (Just open /boot/grub/grub.cfg with gedit, search for the parameter. if it's a UUID, check if it's the correct one with ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid). Please report back.

comment Triple boot win7,Ubuntu,Kali
Just have an ubuntu cd or usb in case things go wrong. As long as you don't delete or otherwise damage your current partitions, you will be able to recover your PC ;)

comment OpenJDK - Oracle is better?
Also, the benchmarks show little difference between the two. It is possible that if the guy did the tests again, openjdk would win by some miliseconds. Performance differs from system to system, and benchmarks aren't as accurate as you might expect. Therefor, I suggest relying more on your experience than benchmarks.

comment OpenJDK - Oracle is better?
Back when jdk6, the winner was hands-down oracle. Now, I tried running minecraft and intellij with both, and there is no noticeable difference. The only "proof" you can have is trying it yourself, the fact that openjdk is the reference implementation, and this blog post: weblogs.java.net/blog/robogeek/archive/2009/01/05/…

comment OpenJDK - Oracle is better?
@Alex Java (OpenJDK and Oracle) is split in two packages: The Java Runtime Environment (JRE), and the Java Development Kit (JDK). If you just want to run some java programs, the JRE is all you need. If you want to compile some java programs (javac, which stands for java compiler), you'll need the JDK. Install the JDK with sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk.

comment creating wine shortcuts
Or, you can use quotation, which is pretty much more readable. wine '/home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Some Program with many spaces/program.exe'

comment How can I boot into Windows from GRUB rescue without a CD drive?
@LordLoh.: He's talking about grub rescue. Grub rescue drops you on a console without prompting and that console doesn't have a chainloader command. (not even a help command for that matter)
