Putting an USB key into most of my servers requires some hours of
driving and jumping through security hoops to get datacenter access.
In some cases, it may be possible to mail the USB key and to pay
outrageous fees for remote hands.

I'd prefer an OS which allows full remote installation that does not
need some kind of physical access.
