Just to extend on this a little.
At $WORK we let our devs choose the OS (*nix) for their workstation and set
it up the way that suits them best.
This helps with their productivity as they get to work with their favourite
tools etc but it presents the problem that they are no longer developing on
systems that look like a customers Prod. environment.
With mostly all machines of today having a ton of RAM and KVM being in the
mainline kernel now it became easy to give them access to what's needed to
build their own VM's that mimic the customers production environment.
This Thursday I will demonstrate how we make use of libvirt,(plus assoc.
tools), kickstart, a yum mirror and puppet to accomplish this.
Feel free to bring a laptop with libvirt + the packages that provide
'virt-install + virsh + virt-viewer' and participate.
There's an excellent video + presentation up at  by R.I. Pienaar that
talks about this subject that's worth watching if you haven't already.
