What is the best Linux for Virtual Machine?
I've got a computer with 16gb RAM just for enjoying VM's. First Look was on Gentoo. But how to compile and optimize for VM hosting (it would be my first experience of compilation)? There might be ready-made Linuxes for VM-hosting.
I think very positive about getting a bare-metal VM (mb Xen.. but not ESX for I have a single PC) albeit I'm feeling I am overwhelmed with tasks.
Maybe somebody knows the way?

If you found Gentoo too hard, try Debian, as a suggestion.

I personally use KVM-based virtual machines. Support for them is built into the kernel and all the packages you need are available in repos for the latest Fedora or CentOS release.
If you want the latest stable version, you might want to go with Scientific Linux 6.0 (based off of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0).
