Use official distro-provided cloud images where available

Creating an image is a tricky process with plenty of room for subtle mistakes. At least one distro, Ubuntu, provides official "cloud images" (http://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/). DigitalOcean should use these official images where available, rather than rolling its own.

    We can look into the standard images, but we haven't yet, it really comes down to if it's a minimal install or has a bit more pre-installed which a lot of customers dont like.

    What's the difference between these images and the regular Ubuntu images?
