Yes it does work, sometimes a technician has to help, which happens fast and automatically. And if you have special hardware in your box (some have a new Intel Gigabit Ethernet that's not yet in the kernel), there are plenty of patches around the forums. After really intensly testing OVH, I recommend using it, as I myself will do with my first real servers beginning early september.
