Obviosuly I don't need it or I'd know. But what would you do with multiple desktop systems that can be worth $49?

1. Develop Windows apps while using Linux as my base OS (stability).
2. Create test images for deployment (to refresh the test image, just copy it over again)
3. Setup separate development environments (VB6, VS.Net 2003, VS.NET 2005, SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005).
4. Test out new OS's, like Solaris, NetBSD, etc
5. Run Legacy apps that require DOS, Win 3.1 or Windows 9X that won't run on XP.
6. Create server images for Postgresql, Mysql, Oracle without installing them on you hard drive.

Etc, etc, etc!!
