There's an ongoing discussion of the announcement over at Hacker News for those interested. As a disclaimer, I have worked for Linode for a little over a year now, but I was a very happy customer for five years. For Slashdotters who already have a Linode, you'll need to issue a reboot to use the new memory; sorry about ruining your uptime;)."
