I'm not knocking it - but given everything gets wiped on every shutdown, what are some usage scenarios that, in your opinion, makes it "better" than a VM, given that you can create checkpoints and roll them back? Is it somehow "more isolated" than a VM might be by default, that sort of thing?
It's quick and convenient. A no brainer.

There will always be people that prefer bare metal and those that prefer VMs. For those that deal with graphics, video editing, etc. bare metal is very valuable. And this is just a cool little way to pop up an isolated environment and get on about your day if you're a bare metal type of person.

If you live in VMs... you do you. It's still cool though. As for me, I just buy new machines now if I want a different OS as I personally don't have a need for snapshots. So, it's cool.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
