what are the most common things people use it for?
what can it be used for?
i know it allows you to run a OS within/on top of your main OS but not much more than that.
Also to add to this subject the reason I'm asking is I was gonna set up dual boot (windows/linux) on my pc but thought maybe i could kill 2 birds with one stone and learn how to use this program, as well as using it to load linux and learn how to operate linux.

I'm trying to get an idea of how in depth one can use or push a VM. I don't have a badass computer by any means but still curious.
