Been in IT for years - these guys are the best
Linode has been rock solid.
Linode's support has been the best I've ever experienced. SO fast.
Linode's documentation is out of this world awesome.
I'm a windows and netware server admin. Linux and Unix are foreign to me. With Linode docs and forum I've setup Ubuntu and Debian with associated services for my Drupal site, and everything is running great.
I heart Linode - it's that simple.
They use Xen, which is the past
They're IPv4 only, which sucks donkey balls
They're now spending most of their time building a shiny web2.0 panel that sucks, and they can't even get it right.
The flame is fading. Move along.
Linode has my vote and my business.
But please tell us - what applications are you running right now or in the next few months that this affects? I really hope the answer isn't nothing! Else why the griping??? =)
