I would note that gandi was initiated in part by Valentin Lacambre of altern.org who is known in France for having tried to stand up against corporations that tried to shut down his free hosting web site because one of the page members had posted scans of court-prohibited pictures.

In the end he lost and got to pay a fee.

Note that at that time, he offered 10M free space while the ISP and other usual services used to offer only 1M...

For those who can read french: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Lacambre
and http://www.journaldunet.com/itws/it_lacambre.shtml

Even though gandi was resold some years ago, I still believe the original spirit is there. That's why I still use them.
