Arch Linux is my development distribution of choice. At home, I set up an
Arch linux "server" running essentially nothing but VirtualBox and SSHd. I
also set up a cluster of Arch Linux based virtual machines to do actual
development on, administer the internal network, serve email, etc.

Exactly. And I never did find a satisfactory way to do that on my laptop.
The only reason I'm using Ubuntu on this laptop is because of Arch's rolling
release model. I had Arch on here, but at some point, a kernel upgrade
caused a major regression. All my important data was backed up, so I nuked
Arch and tried Ubuntu (with a 6+ month old kernel). It worked. I'd rather
be using Arch, but this hardware imposes limitations.
