If you don't know what virtualization is then you are probably not using it. But, it is very valuable at the high end of computing if you are using VMWARE, HyperV or a MAC that uses virtualization alot. IMO, I would leave it on. It's not going to hurt anything.

virtualize (third-person singular simple present virtualizes, present participle virtualizing, simple past and past participle virtualized)
  1. (transitive, computing) To run a program in virtual storage
  2. (transitive, computing) To simulate (or make virtual) some effect or condition on a computer
  3. (transitive, art) To make or conform to a virtual reality.

Hello DjDeep,

Sorry, but virtualization will not help with the performance of playing a game.

It's basically running another operating system in a window inside your current operating system.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

On the very, very low end of the spectrum that is what you get to see, yes.

But not quite. Virtualization is essentially sandboxing a system in a virtual environment (or jail) which can be `supervised' (or hypervised) by a `higher level' OS that takes care of the more risky tasks and in particular ensures that no 2 sandboxes can upset each other or their host environment.

Once you scale this up a notch or two it means that you could use one machine with some serious oomph to run multiple virtual workstations: allowing you to pretend that your 1 PC/Server is actually N of them.
