VPS virtualizes an entire OS, right? that is overkill for running a
rails app, youll get less out of the same hardware, and pay more for the
privelege.

Actually, it's the best way to run a Rails app. Rails on shared hosting
is problematic at best.

For cheap and easy deployment, I recommend Heroku or Slicehost.

theres no need to access system-dirs for an app anyways. a
decent host will already have stuff you might want like various gems,
imagemagick, etc - if not theres always add $HOME/bin to the env..

That never works properly, at least not in my experience. Sooner or
later you need root access.

Best,

I have found webappcabaret.com to offer the best choices for VPS and
Shared hosting. For some the VPS may be overkill because it also
includes regular
website management features (Plesk or cPanel). The neat thing about the
shared
plans, is that you can choose a specific Ruby and RAILS version for each
of your apps.
