Very few (any??) cloud images have password login enabled. Probably
because this is a _cloud_ image. Anyone, anywhere can download it,
and if there was a default PW, then anyone could login.

Instead, you add your SSH key to OS, and then add that to the instance.

Look in Horizon, under "Project -> Compute -> Access & Security -> Key Pairs"
and then "Project -> Compute -> Instances -> Launch Instance -> Key Pair".
