SubjectRe: Kernel testing in a VM good idea?

To testing I use 2 machines: PC (mainly use for development,
multimedia) and laptop (work, home etc.). Firstly I test kernel on PC.
When I'm sure, that kernel doesn't cause any filesystem/hardware
error, lost data, then I test it also on laptop. When You can't use
more than one computer, I think that is good idea testing/development
on VM, before use real machine.
