What is the best virtualization software for Reverse engineering and exploit development?

    You need to refine a bit your question, right now your scope is way too broad. Try to tell more about your context (is it software or hardware reverse engineering ? what kind of target/usage are you aiming for ? ...).

You could use Kali which is designed for that purpose. http://www.kali.org/ You can either install it onto your machine or use VM to execute it or even use it as LiveCD.
