I think I'll try that with linux, I've messed with it a little bit but hated having to devote a partition and disk space on my meager 300Gb Raid Stripe to something I didn't spend that much time with.
Could it provide improved security?
Yea, with VMware, you setup a dynamic virtual drive, so it will only use the the space it needs.
As far as improved security, I'm not sure, as I have always just set vmware to use the same ethernet connection my desktop is using, but there probably are options to make the virtual machines connection more secure if you wanted.
But yea, VM's are great for just fooling around. I remember for a little bit, I was running VM's of Win 95, 98, XP, and Vista, and have windows 7 as my actual OS. I had like a little interactive Windows museum lol.
