I'm not sure what VMs would solve in this context. More VMs simply mean more machines that have to be updated separately.

I've pretty much fully bought into the "separation of concerns" idea, so I don't mix my DC roles with my SQL roles or WSUS or web servers or dev boxes or whatever other services. And it's worthwhile - if something goes down, it's just one box that has a single job and doesn't take down my whole infrastructure.

But it does mean that you now have many more machines to maintain. And that doesn't do anything to help in Chris's scenario.
