TurnKey Bitkey is a 'desktop' type distro (albeit with a specific purpose). Whereas the rest of the TurnKey appliances are headless server appliances (so they do not contain X11 or any of the other Graphic UI applications). So in that context Bitkey is a very lightweight graphical desktop OS!

For more info about TurnKey Bitkey appliance have a look at the announcement blog post.

If you are specifically interested in Bitkey and bitcoin type stuff then you may also be interested in another TurnKey blog post (and the ensuring discussion).
