My hosting provider, dreamhost, runs Debian. Individual machines may not
meet your specs, but they do have a lot of them.

ELF is the first rock group that Ronnie James Dio performed with back in 
the early 1970's.  In constrast, a.out is a misspelling	 of the French word 
for the month of August.  What the two have in common is beyond me, but 
Linux users seem to use the two words together.
