As an EPiServer developer I have to install IIS, to be able to develop and test the applications.
I usually have templates of different OS laying around as quick sandboxes. All I need to do is create a linked clone, and in under 5 min I have a new Sandbox ready to be hacked.
It happens sometimes I want to change the Location type/profile of a certain Network Adapter (mostly when testing).
Sometimes added security can be pain, when you really need to get things done.
Good free and cheap hosting.
