Do any of the cloud VPS operators offer Gentoo as an install option?

grant123,

OVH do ... don't use their Gentoo, its several years out of date.

In fact, the ony way to get a Gentoo you will like is to install it yourself

Thanks, I'm just trying to come up with something I can set up really easily in a remote VPS so I can toss it around for testing some stuff. Do any of the providers make that relatively easy?

grant123,

They will all give you Linux.

Why do you want remote and/or VPS?
Some VPS can boot an ISO so you can do your own install.

Also, price wise, there is an overlap between VPS and real whole servers, so don't dismiss real hardware.

Something like digitalocean.com just makes it so incredibly easy to be up and running in 60 seconds.
