Getting Started With Virtual Machines.
A virtual machine is in effect a computer that runs within (that is inside of) your “real” computer. The VM is called the Guest and the real computer is called the Host. Confused? You won’t be after reading the intro guide.
The guest system is completely isolated from the host. It’s totally unaware that the host system even exists. To give a simple example, if you get a virus or malware on your VM, it can’t spread to your “real” (or host) computer. And that is a real security bonus.
Many of us at home have computers that are powerful enough to run at least one virtual machine. So why not have a go.
