I was reading about these yesterday. They look *really* good. I'm
currently using Digital Ocean as I was awarded a tonne of free
credit for finding some security flaws in their site, but if I
didn't have that credit, I'd definitely be firing up one of these
and playing with it. 2GB RAM, 50GB disk, unmetered 200Mbit/sec
bandwidth and 4 CPU cores for the price of a beer!

Bodes well for the future. At this rate we're gonna have capable
99p/month servers in a few years.

P.S. They're not VPS, they're bare metal.
