  • Having your entire system in a VHDX is great
    • You can fork different versions using disk differencing
    • Tree-like history of important states for your computer
    • Run dangerous stuff in a clone of your system as a VM
    • Copy VHDX onto USB to migrate your entire box to different physical hardware
    • Upload VHDX periodically for backups
    • Catalog of VHDXs for different OS-es you need to run
    • Can even setup a network boot system to share VHDXs for getting n00bs up and running (sysprep yada yada yada)
