I don't think the version or even the edition of Windows is a major factor for running X-plane 11. So you might consider other criterias to choose which windows you would like.

Browsing through different forums didn't make any particular windows appear especially bad for running XP11.00. I'm using Windows 8.1 64 bits familial myself.

You should choose Windows 10 64bit. You can read more about supported operating systems here.
