Without writing a textbook, can someone tell me the benefit of having/using a virtual machine, since Version 8 includes it?
I know that if you are testing new software and you don't want to install it on a production system, it's safer to use a VM, basically in a sandbox.
You could already mount an image as a new drive letter to restore any files you wanted to.
So what's the benefit?
As an extension, another question. On a server, what's the benefit of running a VM and connecting to that with work systems, as opposed to just connecting to the system without the VM?
Wouldn't that use more resources/RAM, slowing things down?
