VirtualBox: Bits and Bytes Masquerading as Machines
Although the most common use of virtualization technologies is still certainly in the enterprise space, there are enough desktop virtualization applications out there now that a home user can join the fun. Whether you need an OS to study for a certification, want to run an OS that your host machine can't run directly (like me), want to run a server but don't have another physical machine to use, or just plain-old want to experiment, VirtualBox is a quick-and-easy way to jump into the fray.
