Yeah, I'd throw out here that there are good and bad virtual hosts...  
if you're trying to stay up on the bleeding edge with software.   
(Sometimes that is NOT the goal... if all you need is a website, and  
you're not installing the latest Mountain Dew basement-tweaker's  
software, it's not)...

But if you want "up to date" virtuals that are also stable, EVERYTHING  
I've ever seen from tummy.com (Sean's place) says they KNOW how to get  
you right up to the edge between leading edge and bleeding edge, and  
keep you there... if that's what you want.
