Oddly enough, I found this out a couple of weeks back when talking to a
friend (Mary, who haunts these parts) about her Linode hosting. Both of us
wondered what it would take to see Linode provide an Ubuntu image, but it
turned out an image already existed - and had only been made in the last day
or so!

I've been chatting with caker about publicising this, and ended up signing
up for a Linode machine the other day. :-)
