Interesting stuff --I like the "Live CD with ____"
approach to distribution.
I am wondering... why do you call them "appliances".
For the longest time, I thought Turnkey Linux was
meant to install Linux on your toaster, microwave,
etc. Why not "backend", "application", "framework", or
something like that? Is "appliance" a buzzword in the
open source community that I'm unaware of?
