MetalVPS Labs presently includes a bare metal server and a group of VPSes from various providers. The bare metal server runs a rolling release current GNU/Linux distribution. So far, the VPSes have been running stable release versions of a different distribution. The specific distributions are not mentioned here because of a desire to focus on the Linux kernel and upstream software, especially features common to all distributions.
