Linode has upgraded its plans several times since then.  

http://www.linode.com/products/linodes.cfm lists the $19.95 plan as
300MB RAM, 10GiB disk, and 200GB/mo transfer.  The bandwidth is not a
hard limit, but you will pay overage on any month you exceed it.

It's possible that these others have upgraded as well; but I regularly
see people in the OFTC #linode channel who are comparison shopping, and
they almost all are impressed by the Linode plans.  The only ones who
aren't are the ones who want a managed service rather than unmanaged.
Those people want a hosting provider rather than virtual machines of
their own.
