There are certainly plenty of arguments for how VMs can help companies reduce costs.

However, personally in cases like mine, I'm using a VM because I want to be able 
to work with more than one operating system without having to own 4 different 
PCs.  And frankly, even for me it provides a great mechanism for upgrades and 
experimentation - I can clone a VM, spin it up disconnected from the network, and 
try to make my changes to it without risking the 'live' machine.

My old process was to build a new desktop system, once it was running take the old
desktop and rebuild it as my internal server, then once that was online and 
everything from the old server was migrated over, take the old server and rebuild it to be the new backup server.  Now I have one server and just build
new VMs.  When the hardware needs upgrading it takes no time at all to copy
over the VM images and spin them up without having to make any configuration
