The VMware appliance is a way to get a pre-configured GLASS (GemStone,
Linux, Apache, Seaside, Smalltalk). While we expect that it will be an
attractive way for most people to try out GLASS, you will have the
option of doing all the setup and configuration yourself--if that is
what you want/need. In that case, the thing to ask for when looking for
hosting plans is simply "64-bit Linux." For example, I just did a Google
search for "64-bit Linux hosting" that led me to
http://www.calpop.com/dedicated.html which offers root access to a Core
2 Duo with Ubuntu 64-bit Linux for $135/month.
P.S. Do you have a name you are willing to share?
