I use openhosting ( http://www.openhosting.com) for a few things ruby and non-ruby.  They offer pretty much what you would expect from a VPS provider - static IP address, root access on something that looks like a linux box, etc.

I've not done to much research into alternatives, but I really like the openhosting pricing model.  Basically you pay for the resources you use, rather than a fix monthly cost with hard line caps.  Given they still have some canned commit levels so you are not going to get hosting for $0.02, but I like the idea of paying for my CPU ticks and bandwidth on a metered rate rather than keeping my fingers crossed that I don't exceed my threshold.  It certainly seems to handle load spikes a lot better.
