We might not get the difference, but they will make us get the most of our hardware resources.
Virtual machine is hardware-level virtualization, a VM provides a real computer emulation and is implemented using software emulation programs. The end-user gets the same experience as an operating system hosted on physical hardware with a virtual machine running on a machine.
