Best VPS provider with Slackware?

Hey slackers,
I'm looking for a virtual server somewhere, and wanting some opinions. I use slackware exclusively in home/office in a small network install, and I just love it.

I like rackspace, but they only have Arch Linux (closest thing to slack they have). Are there are opinions out there on this? Does slackware translate well to a fully-fledged LAMP server? I will have multiple projects hosted on said server for multiple clients.

Is another distro better for this kind of thing? I really would appreciate to hear all sides of this.

Current contenders:
Host Virtual -
Linode -

I use and I've found nothing to complain about. It just works. They currently offer Slackware 12.2.
