For production virtualization, I'm a big proponent of
libvirt. It's a snap to set up. You mentioned Ubuntu, which packages
libvirt. This would allow you to use good virtualization technology and
run as many unmodified distros/operating systems as you'd like.
libvirt is free/open source software, and happens to be free of charge.
