    Secure Dragon has 32, 64, and 96 Mb packages. DotVPS has the same I think but not sure on their stock. I have an 80 Mb package that's always available.

    64MB:
    — VPSlink still offers 64MB Xen VPS
    prgmr 64MB XEN VPS for $5 in San Jose 
    — MaximumVPS has 64MB KVM VPS. Currently, no stock
    — HTTPZoom 64MB OpenVZ VPS in UK
     
    96MB: 
    — miniVPS might still have a few available, it's 96MB OpenVZ VPS in UK
    — IPXcore do offer 96MB OpenVZ VPS, but, it's with CC. Not sure if they are offering 96MB in Cali via AIS

    Edit: Typo.

    BLUE0 - 64MB of RAM ($5 /Yr)

    Also we have the 0.5 which, while it has 128 MB of RAM, it's price is where a lot of providers put their 64 MB VPS, at $7.50 /Yr.

    The order link for BLUE0 (october offer) does not work anymore, and I don't see a new link on the web site. The smallest VPS is BLUE0.5.

    IP space there is ~$1.00 per month. So no we really shouldn't unless we want to take a fairly significant loss per plan sold.

    It's under our special offers at the bottom: https://bluevm.com/cart.php?gid=42

    A 64 Mb OVZ VPS works just fine as personal PPTP or SSH VPN, DNS server, uptime monitor. After installing a minimal Debian template, no special precautions are needed. 

    It can be used to host many further services, but with limitations.

    Proxies, DNS Servers, IRC Bouncers, persistant IRC clients...

    Those of us that had PCs in the 80s/90s know there's quite a bit you can do with just a couple megs of RAM :p

    I go way back before there was even a megabyte of RAM in a computer.

    First internet connected computers I toiled with probably had 2-4MB of system RAM for everything.

    Frankly, the modern OS is a disaster.  Slow, bulky, bloated.

    Routinely screwing around with 2GB+ RAM machines that hit RAM limits, doing retarded swapping, etc.  OS logic seems in Linux to abuse swap, even when turning swapiness down still churns doing who knows what.  Mind you these are clean installs day 1 into things.  Debian, Ubuntu, related derivatives.

    I can see myself going back to mainly terminal and fughettaboutit with wizbang GUI crap.  I want computers that work now and right sort of real time-ish.

    Others hit on uses.   I find myself doing more lately on a Raspberry Pi than big power drinking workstation.  The Pi is more of a low end system and same spirit.

    It is funny when people try running windows in a 64mb KVM and complaining in a support ticket that it doesn't work.
