Woooow, this is fantastic, thanks Colin, Elsa and Mel! Yay Olin :)

We have instructions for SoaS. The whole page could use some cleanups.
In particular we should not mix different distributions in the same
page imo and we should expand the linux section. But it's a start.
In general I suggest that we don't settle on a *single* canonical
distributions but we list all the distributions that matches certain
criteria. For example: ship a very recent Sugar version, are
reasonably easy and documented to install, are in a good enough state
to be tested by non-developers. In practice SoaS is probably the only
one that matches them at the moment, hopefully that will change soon.
