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?
