Some concise reasons as to why desktop virtualization can be beneficial.

While virtualization is still a new concept to some admins, it has been adopted by so many more. In my opinion, understanding virtualization isn’t hard, it allows you so much flexibility and power, and you need less hardware. When it comes to desktop virtualization you could, for example, run a Windows Server with Exchange 2007 and Linux Server running Apache, all inside your laptop or desktop computer – amazing! Plus, there are free desktop virtualization products like Microsoft Virtual PC which are easily installed. So, if you haven’t tried virtualization, I encourage you to try it out today by downloading Microsoft Virtual PC or VMware Server.
