I downloaded VirtualBox a couple weeks ago, 'cause it seemed cool, but 
never really used it for anything... then this conversation comes along, 
and wow, I realize I'm sitting on a very interesting product DEFIANTLY 
worth learning about and playing with! Thank you all!

(Okay, that was my Geeksgiving thanks hahaha!)
((and will check out Hyper-V too, never hurts to learn more than one trick))
