Very pleased with my Linode80
It's not very often when people take the time out to say something good about a product, but I thought I'd share my Linode experience with the community.
I've had my Linode80 for just over 1 year now, and didn't do a lot with it at first, other than experimenting with different distro's. I now run a web server for a friend of mine on Debian 3.1, as they run a chatroom which requires a dedicated server (hence Linode being my choice).
Unless you have the money to put your own dedicated server in a datacentre somewhere, I think Linode is the next best thing. I've not had many issues, but when I have, I found the support ticket system very quick and I usually get a fix/response in just an hour or two.
I just hope Linode continues to develop, and doesn't get too commercial which is often the downfall for most hosting providers. Don't change a good thing!

… which became a Linode 100 on Jun-16 this year. A quick reboot will get you your extra RAM.
See the announcement:
Linode Three Year Anniversary and 25% additional RAM
