Ultrafast install possible
Set that all buses are fast enough, usb read bandwith up to 400 MB/s and SSD writes up to 700MB/s we could get a ubuntu-install in the time of 2-3 seconds when just copying a btrfs-image of ubuntu from a usb thumbdrive over to a fast SSD-Drive ... wooooooow (am I right?)

The problem with Canonical is that they don't contribute much at all to the rest of the community. Their users are THEIR users. They might as well not even be a regular distribution.
