1) So you can run it without futzing with windows

2) So you don't have to edit the partition tables because
  I) You're only trying it out
  II) You're a noob and don't want to do anything dangerous
  III) It's a work machine with onerous policies

3) You want to convert a VM Image into a real OS host

4) You want to convert a real OS host into a VM Image to run on windows

5) You support a multi OS shop and the more ways an OS can be tested, the better

6) Something like this should pass unit tests anyways

7) It's fun
