Hi Adam -

The OS of the guest is independent of the Openstack version.  Your choice of hypervisor (KVM, VMWare, HyperV, etc) would just need to support the OS version that you want to run on your guests.

Hey everyone, do specific versions of OpenStack necessitate specific versions of guest os's? I.e. if I'm running a mitaka cloud platform, do the guest vm operating systems need to be a specific version of Linux? My understanding is the two are totally unrelated when the VM's are running Linux but I wanted to check if things have recently changed without my knowledge.
