A Small Orange, another previous employer of mine, also offers some pretty decent VPSes; the pricing is a little higher but they tend to be first to roll out new technology, and also has a lot of user-friendliness
Digital Ocean is pretty decent, but nothing really special. A good provider for development, for sure, as the instances are fairly cheap.
RamNode offers both OpenVZ and KVM (KVM is full-virtualization)

I’m pretty sure Jthan moved his Linode because he moved from PA to CO.
You technically CAN oversell on KVM, but it’s a bit difficult to do- so most KVM providers don’t. :)
Next time I am using a nailgun to firmly affix Jthan’s imagination cap in place.
Jthan still has not seen Jurassic Park or Star Wars.
This one came in over IRC but they left before I could thank them:
< Tarragon> I found a slight errata in S0E17. You said the number of packages in CentOS would be larger than Debian because you can pull in RHEL repositories. CentOS is about 12,000 packages in total while Debian is 56864 pre compiled plus a further 14975 source packages
Thanks for the correction, Tarragon! (Though I think wondered how many EPEL pulls in?)
It turns out the visualizer used in Jurassic Park is real! Thanks to “RikyM” who pointed us out to fsn!
