For Windows guest - KVM or XEN and which distro for host?


Neither for your use case. Things that you can do that will make sense - Dual boot or run a hypervisor on a separate box ( which is what I do ) . I bought an Intel NUC PC which fits in the palm of your hand, and I installed VMWare ESXI (free version) on it, though you can install another hypervisor. This gives you a almost invisible box to run several VM's on at a pretty low cost. It's also very flexible so that you can erase the SSD and load windows/linux on it if you no longer need VM's.
