Could you perhaps link me to that thread if it was on this list?

But are there providers offering OI at this cost? I understand what you mean, but of course the same is true for any hosting environment or company.

The trouble is, the market is a race to the bottom (price wise) so it's hard to compete when there are so many providers offering Linux for $10 or less per month with plenty of resources for a small server.
