For me is the ability to use 2 OSs at the same time without rebooting a system.
Is so sweet to run your favorite MS App on MS OS and go back to Linux with a stroke of a key within seconds.
One thing that I enjoyed a lot....
I was running Mandriva on my Laptop, fire up Netflix and said, FU you are running a non-supported OS/Browser. So I used VBox OSE and ran XP with IE. Silverlight got installed and I was watching Netflix on my Linux system on a VBox caged OS. Once I finished my movie, just turned off VBox.
Another thing is that you can minimize the view and leave it on a corner of the Desktop and go back and forth between OSs. No need for another PC. Is a very cost effective solution if you need 2 OSs for different proprietary applications.
