"yes, this is true.

you can use virtual machines as 'disposable computers' for added security, i.e. destroy the VHD after each online banking session or financial transaction and restore the clean backup disk image. virtual machines are also popular as test platforms for new software (if limited graphics power is not an issue).

this is also true for other virtualization software such as VirtualBox or VMware or Parallel.

p.s.: VHD Attach makes mounting virtual disks in Windows 7 a lot easier."
