Been with them for a while now and more satisfied than I have ever been with another hosting company. I give them huge props for writing ALL their own hosting panel apps and keeping everything useful and lightweight (even if it is rails, heh). I tried a handful of VPS providers (but skipped linode for some reason, don't recall why) before deciding, and what sold me on Slicehost was:
Don't mean to sound like a shill, but I burned through a handful of bad VPS providers while waiting for my slice to be ready and was overjoyed when I got to it. The VM images at some of those places were messier than a shared host environment.

Slicehost is a great VPS provider, with a wide choice of fully supported Linux distributions. Support is excellent. Some features are missing though, like the ability to request ad additional IP address for a slice, but that will be added soon. There's a cool automated slice backup management.
