    You can install nearly any distro to perform virtualization, but fedora would be the best for easy setup of kvm. I am recommending kvm instead of virtualbox because it is much faster.

    The biggest thing you need to consider is the quantity or RAM that is needed for multiple virtual installations. How much RAM do you have now?
