Ease of use is the big benefit of a specialized distribution.  We're
planning on adding kickstart support using the udeb's that Ubuntu wrote
that will allow for quick mass installations though.

Currently it talks via Xend's http interface.  We have been thinking
implenting a new protocol that has some ideas of state though as this
would make for a much more user friendly experience.

Thanks for the feedback
