        Would be cool if it wasn't just limited to "embedded displays, IoT, and related use-cases" but could be installed on a few clicks on a laptop/desktop and allow for a kiosk mode login from /G/K/LightDM.
        I would love to have a Spotify/Youtube/whatever-only session for when you throw a party or dinner.
        Guests could change the music at their will while not having any access to other parts of your computer while you're passed out drunk somewhere else (not me).

            There is a kioski mode for gnome now (although I don't know about its status for mainstream distros):

                Maybe you already can install it on a laptop? Why wouldn't you be able to?

                  That isn't available "out of the box" because Ubuntu Frame has no way to launch your Spotify/Youtube/whatever-only session. (It would be easy to launch both from a script though - and run that on login.)
