TurnKey Linux is a new opensource project that aims to develop high-quality software appliances that are easy to deploy, easy to use and free. The project's motto is "everything that can be easy, should be easy" and basically the goal is to try and make Ubuntu easier to use for certain types of (mostly server) tasks.
As described on our website:
- Based on Ubuntu 8.04.1 (hardy LTS).
- Minimal footprint (typically around 150MB) - each appliance is
carefully built from the ground up with the minimum components needed
to serve its role with maximum efficiency and security.
- Packaged as an installable Live CD (I.e., bootable ISO) that can run
on real hardware in addition to most types of virtual machines.
