Why not ESXi? No need for a host OS...

Subject: Pentest lab box 16 gigs of ram
I'm thinking of building a vmware target box for a pentest practice
lab consisting of:
cheap Dell server with 16 gigs of ram PowerEdge T105
My question is with the host OS.
I was contemplating the home version of Windows 7 to give me a 64 bit
OS to support the amount of ram I'm planning on
Does anyone have any experience with the latest version of VMware
workstation and if it will run properly on Windows 7?
would 64 bit Ubuntu be a better idea?
