I almost always suggest VMware ESXi for virtualization. It's amazing
and powerful, but it's also relatively expensive. Since you want it
for personal use, I think the paid version is overkill anyway.
Not speaking from experience, only reading docs and opinion articles,
I think KVM is the way to go for a Hypervisor. You can layer libVirt
(http://libvirt.org/) on top of it for management purposes. I think
this is the recommended way to manage KVM anyway.
