Topic: Cloud hosting FreeBSD

With everyone switching to cloud hosting why is there such a restriction on supplied OS? I've used FreeBSD for years now and still haven't found anything that comes close in terms of stability. All I can find in the cloud is various Linux distributions and in particular CentOS.

I have found a VMware virtual machine from stratogen cloud hosting but I would really like to compare their pricing with others. Does anyone have any ideas for other service providers? VMware seems to support it, but there doesn't appear to be many providers who will give you just the raw machine and allow you to install your own OS.

Thanks in advance.
