Netspace is fairly good, quite responsive, and they seem to be very
clued in (witness their web site being valid XHTML ;-) They don't
officially support Linux, but I've gotten good support for the few
issues I've had, even when I told them what I was running . . .

On the other hand, they aren't unlimited, and you can't beat up Nemo
at the next CLUG meeting when something goes wrong . . . ;-) I'm
switching to Goldweb when my Netspace contract runs out mostly
because they're unlimited and a bit cheaper, aside from the Linux
shop side of things.
