For the type of work you're describing I'll second the recommendation
of VirtualBox. There's a deb package available for (K)Ubuntu  and
the setup procedure is fairly well documented . The GUI is very
intuitive so anybody who has used VMware would not have a problem

I don't know that VirtualBox would be any less taxing on your machine but YMMV.
