That's a major attraction of UML. You can play with any distro you want
in UML regardless of what's installed on the host.
I've become a major Debian fan based on my experience with it in UML (the
host runs RH).

I like having the ability, when people ask for a shell, to reply with
"On what distribution?". Makes my life easier, since I don't have to
teach people how to use something new, and they get stuff done.

Likewise. Since I started messing with UML seriously a couple of years
ago, I've become a Debian convert and actually install it on host
systems now. I'm only glad that my 'poke it until it breaks' period was
on UML :-)
