For what it's worth, I consider myself to be firmly in the target audience for WS: I'm a web developer using all Free software and I've been using Linux since about Red Hat 7.

Mostly I use virtualisation to test stuff in MSIE on various flavours of Windows. If GNOME Boxes, libvirt, etc. is installed by default then I'll remove it and install VirtualBox.
