'X' should be split cleanly into client and server programs where in
X-speak  the server serves the display and keyboard and programs are
the clients.   An X client program should not be touching any hardware
directly.  But, virtualization stuff might try to cheat.   If you
don't need the local console, you might try loading VMware ESXi first,
then run all your other OS's as guests under that - you do need a
windows box to run as the console when making changes or installing
things, though.
