@AlphaJohn the machine will be running Ubuntu 10.04 or later and probably Windows server 2008. It'll be used to host a web server to start with. There may be a number of VMs and depending on what they're used for, an OS will be selected. I suppose the gist of my question is which OS is better for hosting VMs in general.
Yeah. I have a lappie with 1GB RAM. Windows (xp/vista/7) were all running slowly with whatever I tried. This is actually how I got into running Linux in the first place. Now, I've tried running a VM on a Linux host with Windows XP and it runs fine.
Its official. Linux even makes Windows better.
