There are some reasons to use virtual machines in recreational use as well. Firstly different software have different requirements for operating systems. So if installing a software on your current operating system is not supported then you can install the software in a virtual machine using a different operating system or configuration. Secondly you may not trust all software and installing it in its own virtual machine is a way to prevent it from reaching other applications and the main operating system.
