TurnKey Windows is a new open source project that aims to develop high quality software appliances that are easy to use, easy to deploy, and free.
In a nutshell, we believe everything that can be easy, should be easy!
Packaging a solution as a software appliance can be incredibly useful because it allows you 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.
- Auto-updated daily with latest security patches.
- Easy to use configuration console and web management interface
Minimal footprint (typically around 150MB) - each software 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 (e.g., VMWare, VirtualBox, Parallels, Xen HVM, KVM).
