Intel Virtualization Technology

In the BIOS there are two options for Virtualization Technology (under CPU).  These are disabled by default.  When should these be enabled?

Re: Intel Virtualization Technology

My understanding of these settings is they will be helpful if you're running virtual operating systems.  I.e., if from Windows you are running VMware instances of Ubuntu, or MacOS, or other Windows instances.  The chipset offers this kind of virtualization software some shortcuts, but unless you need them regularly and are a power user you can leave them off.
