Fun with virtual machines

I’ve been playing around with virtual machines for awhile now, and it finally occurred to me that they are incredibly useful for running services or programs that you don’t want mucking with your host operating system.  What I’m looking for are recommendations, clever and creative ways in which VMs can be used.  For example, I like the ebook management program calibre, but I don’t use very often and so don’t want it constantly running in the background.  iTunes is another program that comes to mind.

So great internet, I, your humble servant, ask you for ideas.
