comment Limiting processes to not exceed more than 10% of CPU usage
Even if you don't use cgroups to limit resource use, you can use it to evaluate how much resources an individual is using, by looking at the 'stat' file for each resource, then use that information for your 5 minute script.

comment Limiting processes to not exceed more than 10% of CPU usage
CGroups is the way to go, though. I also run (many) shared computer servers and we use cgroups to limit the maximum number of cores an entire login session can use. This way, if the person keeps starting new processes, each one gets a smaller slice. Same for memory use. You can have users automatically put into a cgroup with pam_cgroups and the cgrulesengd service. You can use a 'template' in the cgconfig file to put each user into their own cgroup. cgrulesengd acts like your script, except instead of killing processes, it just makes sure each process is in the right cgroup.

With RHEL5 and RHEL6 systems, you really should be using yum instead of up2date.

comment Installing Chrome on Linux without needing to be root
This isn't going to work anymore on RHEL6. The stable versions of Google Chrome includes libraries that require a newer version of libc (and many other libraries) that aren't provided by RHEL6. The Google Chrome package works fine in RHEL7 though.

comment Shebang: History and Purpose
Keep in mind you can have binary executables (for example, ELF binaries) that don't have the executable flag, the kernel doesn't know it can execute them. The executable bit tells the kernel to look at the first bytes to see what kind of executable it is. The shebang tells the kernel its a shell script.
