Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

As virtualization becomes more common place, more and more of your backend services will be virtualized. It might be helping you now and you don’t even know. :) Also, I use Virtual PC at home to run great old DOS games like EGATrek :)

If you want to experiment with a domain environment and be able to completely mess it up and start over from scrath virtualiztion will allow you to do that. You can set up a virtual domain controller, member server and client PC through virtualiztion and then do whatever you want to and reset it to start over if something goes wrong.

I used to have dual or multi boot configurations at home, to run other operating systems, usually Linux and Windows. Now I use virtual machines for the same purpose.
