I have been thinking about that since this morning too, and I was
originally thinking Xubuntu.  Why?  Becuase:
a) I like Ubuntu (and use it at home)
b) Xubuntu is like Ubuntu, but uses a less intense window manager (or
something technical like that) and I thought that would be good to
limit the performance hit cuased by VM's.

I don't know for sure though, there could well be a better distro for this.
