i really fell in love with virtualization when i worked for a company that wrote mail filters and i had to set up environments that mimicked customer setups.....pdc/exchange/app/client.....i could use base images, install software, test things out, and then revert it all....i could do a modest qa cycle in a short time....all without having to get up and turn boxes on and off or potentially hose my box.....
