What do you want it for smile.gif, Linux ones are gennerally better as they can run in less ram and do more stuff wink.gif

Personall i use OpenITC, they have plans from £3 a month to £40 a month and their support is really helpfull if you accidently lock yourself out, the uptime on them is also amazing + 100meg lines + IPv6 + any os you want (they will install for a fee)

08:13:20 up 230 days, 22:06, 1 user, load average: 0.01, 0.01, 0.00

Linky to their plans (they hide it a bit though if you do chose them let me know so i can see if they have a referal program wink.gif )

You'll want a Windows VPS if you want the familiarity of a GUI. You can set up VNC on a Linux VPS but it likely won't offer compatibility with software you're familiar with/want to run.

Popular VPS technologies that support Windows guest operating systems are ESXi, Citrix Xenserver, and KVM. There are others but these are three notable ones.
