I strongly recommend to use linux. The result will usually run faster,
more stable and with less issues.

It is also easier for some 3rd party to create VM images for it, because
there won't be licensing and distribution problems.

Good idea. :)

If the VM software authors could agree on some common disk image format,
I guess this would be easier and more useful.

I currently run virtualbox on my machines, but I never tried to convert
its *.vdi to *.vmdk.

You're lucky, we can offer that since a week, see:
