That's easy! You use it when you need to run an old program that doesn't work correctly in Windows 7. The cons are that it takes up at least 2GB of space.

I personally don't use it very often, but it depends on your needs and the programs you use. Some would even say that it has the sandbox benefit in that you can do whatever you want on the virtual machine w/o the worry of messing up your host machine, but I haven't really used it.

Basically, it's only worth it if you need to run old programs that won't work in 7.
