Lots of that varies. Some VPS's are emulated at software level, others at hardware.You can run nearly any Linux distrobution on Xen and OpenVZ, you can run Windows and Linux on VMWare and Virtuozzo

Yes you can operate different OS.

Yes, you can run different types of OS on VPS. For example, your system may be operating Windows 8, however you will be able to operate different operating systems such as Windows XP, Windows 7 or Linux without restarting your system.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
