Ever heard about virtualization? Do VMWare or VirtualPC sounds familiar? For now I'd say about Sun's VirtualBox, it's also similar as those other 2 virtualization as I mentioned above, and also this one is free...so you can just use it, distribute it among your friends as long you don't get the profit out of it.

Anyway, what's the purpose of using virtualization software? Easy, few benefits like
- Testing some software before deploying it to working machine.
- Testing antivirus software, or malware test, like my testing - /forum/computers-tec...ware-test.html
- Running some "extra dangerous" application that you doesn't want to disturb your actual machine.
- Good thing about virtualization, if you screwed up the system...just delete and recreate, or just revert to previous checkpoint.
- Running 2 OS-es at the same time, isn't that cool?
- And more...
So...I logged in, then I ..did nothing but just sitting there :x
Spoiler!
