Why does the register form still ask for credit card details, now that paypal payments are possible? I don't have one and never needed one for anything else before.

It definitely needs to be possible to create an account with a paypal payment, you can do this at digital ocean so there shouldn't be any problems having the same option here...

The most people use PayPal, because they don't have to sign in with their credit card. I as a student have only a Maestro card, but i can pay via PayPal.
The pricing attracts me; but if i can't log into Linode without a credit card, i don't have another choice to go to Digital Ocean.

And sorry for my bad English.

You could get a prepaid card to sign up with. The card is required in the event that the PayPal account holder disputes a PayPal payment, as PayPal is extremely biased toward the consumer when handling disputes.
