YOu are using VM ( Virtual Machine) for ?
 
As the title said, what are you doing with your VM ? Do you use it in production or just for testing?

Old software.
Sandbox env.
etc

Testing on my computer via VMware Workstation.

Production on my home server via Hyper-V role. It may seem silly (mainly just lazy) but I run a Server 2003 R2 VM on my 2008 R2 server to do web hosting. Mainly because my 2008 has IIS installed to support WSUS and I couldn't be arsed to muck around with settings to change ports :haha:

Finally getting off my ass and learning some programming. Start the downloads, go eat supper, come back and have Ubuntu running in a self-contained environment where Python is native.

Mostly testing Various OS's like Linux, Unix, non Microsoft OS's , I also use my VM with an Win7x64 to make portable software and portable games. it makes it allot easier because after you make the portable I can uninstall the software and my OS is fresh to make a new Portable.
