    I just signed up with Linode a couple of weeks ago after researching many unmanaged VPS providers.

    I've just been playing around with it so far - I haven't actually used it for a production site yet, so I can't really give it a thorough review.

    I really like what I've experienced so far though:

    They started out offering UML based VPSs but this week they made the switch to providing Xen based VPSs.

    They have 3 different data centers to choose from:
    1. GNAX - Atlanta, GA
    2. ThePlanet - Dallas,TX
    3. Hurricane Electric - Fremont,CA

    One of the few VPS providers (that I could find) that allows you to create multiple disk images and then mount file systems to them. So, you can move your /home or any other file system to its own disk image.

    There's a very active and helpful IRC channel - There's almost always a staff member(s) monitoring the channel.

    Console access via SSH and web-based console access from within your account manager. So, you don't need to open a support ticket when you lock yourself out.

    You're also able to add additional storage, RAM, transfer, and ip addresses to your account - something that isn't available at a lot of VPS providers.
