I'd like to know where you live that you can get shell and PPP on the same account for any reasonable fee. You can't do that in the US most of the time, much less in european countries where there may be only one ISP in the entire area (divine forces help you if they run NT!) Living in Northern California, United States I can tell you that most access is PPP, POP3, dynamic IP, unlimited access*, and if you try to access shell on the unix-based ISPs you will LOSE your access real fast. And of course the NT based ones you can't even access a shell. No, it's not "that simple" even here.
