I do this as well (XFS), but it's a far cry from recovery when you've 
screwed up your whole system with a mail server upgrade or you've tried 
to upgrade PHP or perl, only to find that nothing works afterwards.

I find VM very useful.  I'm constantly trying out different distros, 
different packages that I may or may not like to put into place.

And my firewall stays on a little shuttle, I don't plan on putting it on 
a VM.

And yes, I enjoy tinkering, it's how I learn.
