It goes downhill from there.
Rackspace are okay. I've used them (mainly for credibility) and when a customer team lead wanted Debian they (grudgingly) offered it - without full support. They can also be bargained down a long way off their high initial price. I've no problem with RHEL because that's what many corporates want and expect. TBH if I had a budget for "fanatically managed support" I would go with Shadowcat Systems since you guys already support an ISP and I *know* you know what you're doing. Internally we've used 1and1.co.uk and sysadmin the boxes ourselves because I've a background as a sysadmin. As you amusingly pointed out, they're cheap and "their support is as crap as everyone else's".
