What is Turnkey Linux?

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.
