There is also an additional donation made to the Turnkey Linux project for all users choosing a Turnkey distribution pre-installed*.
For 3-month Turnkey Linux pre-installs**, this works out as:
You pay us for the first month
We both donate the value of one month's subscription to Turnkey Linux (you pay us half and we'll pass on the donation)
We give you one month free
For 12-month Turnkey Linux pre-installs**, this works out as:
You pay us for the first 4.5 months
We both donate the value of 3 months' subscription to Turnkey Linux (you pay us half and we'll pass on the donation)
* - Yes, you can install Turnkey initially and then reinstall another OS later. The donation will still be made.
** - Non-Turnkey Linux installs are a standard half price deal.
Who are GigaTux?
GigaTux is a rapidly growing hosting company, launched in February 2007. GigaTux presently has high powered servers situated in a secure location around London. This location offers very impressive connectivity, with a very low latency, high bandwidth connection.

Turnkey Linux is an open source project that's developing a family of free, Ubuntu-based software appliances which are optimized for ease of use in server-type usage scenarios and can be deployed in just a few minutes on bare metal, a virtual machine and in the cloud.
In a nutshell, the Turnkey project believes everything that can be easy, should be easy.
Packaging a solution as a software appliance can be incredibly useful because it allows clients to leverage guru integration skills to build ready to use systems (I.e., turn key solutions) that just work out of the box with little to no setup.
