The Oracle cloud infrastructure always free tier is worth a look if you can put aside past ideological differences with the corporate shell.

2 AMD based Compute VMs with 1/8 OCPU and 1 GB memory each or...
4 Arm-based Ampere A1 cores and 24 GB of memory usable as one VM or up to 4 VMs.

The arm option has been useful, 4 Arm cores and 24Gb of ram and 2 Block Volumes Storage of 200 GB total isn't something to pass up easily.
The only catch is entering a credit card on signup that doesn't get charged.
Considering it's without time limit (foreve, what ever that means) unlike AWS, it might be worth a try if you can forgive Oracle for their past.
