[ILUG] VMWare offer at the moment

I think the attraction of VMware (and similar products) lies in the ability
of being able to run a number of virtual OS so that you can test stuff
without having to dedicate an entire machine to it.
Dual booting is great if you want to have two OS, but VMware allows you to
have 5 or 6 versions/OS on the same machine (from what I understand - I
never could get it to work on my old p3 850)

So why not run Windows, or reboot into Windows,
or have a second PC running Windows?
I'm not trying to start an argument.
I'm genuinely puzzled about the attractions of VMWare.
Am I right in assuming you need a 10GHz machine to run it?
