Rebuilding Server

Rebuilding my server here at the house this weekend (if I have time), thinking about putting Ubuntu Server on there instead of Gentoo.  I don't really know why, I've just been fairly pleased with managing the Ubuntu virtual machines lately and are growing more accustomed to them over Gentoo.  Am I losing my inner-geek?

To go with this currently deciding between continuing with my existing vserver setup, or swapping over to using KVM. This would give me some more flexibility in the supported virtual machines, but if I'm only messing with linux virtual servers, does it really benefit me at all to go with KVM?

Once I get all of this situated and get things configured and up and running reliably, I'm going to go ahead and move the remaining web hosting sites over to my internal server and close out my current colocation box.  I see no reason to keep spending money when I have this server sitting here.
