VirtualBox has worked pretty well for me on Linux hosts though I have never tried it on a Windows host. It's a pretty nice open source equivalent to VMware. Check here for which distribution you should run.

One other thing I wanted to mention about virtualization: you don't really get the full experience of a distro in a virtualized environment. It's nice, you pick up the basics, how the distro looks and feels but in terms of performance, I've always felt it's best to install it on a physical device and see how it does. There are things that go unnoticed in a virtual machine that won't pop up until you've actually installed it on your machine.
Just a thought.
