Although if we're talking about hosting :p... I've been happy with a 
$9.95 shared host on Hostgator for a number of smaller installs and 
recently got myself one of their VPS offerings and have been very happy 
with the support and the performance.  Looking at the price points I 
think you get a little bit more server than Linode but like Linode it's 
very hands on but you get ssh access so you can get everything you need 
using wget and yum.
