I juat want to know how people use virtualisation and for what.
I use it as a part of my use whatever os system, basicly after i started using linux i foubd out that if i am on linux i figured out its hard to use same local sql dbs and such for testing which is quite important for me since i am a lot on the move and i go to it school so i needed to either be all the time in windows se we were learning mssql server or figure something out, so i started with moving all files to vms so whether i am on windows or linux i have same test servers same build agents and such. And before someone says you could use cloud i dont have wifi in my school so if i need internet i use my phones hotspot but i try to limit usage of that
As i said i have so much more then just sql test dbs, i host all my internal(only i use stuff) on those like build agents even my personal repos are on there,
On other hand on my old system i use it as a way to host a second set of build agents for linux because that is strictly windows machine since it is family system.
