While I see benefits of this system for enterprizes (eg. reduced cost of software security management) I see no benefit for indivdual users. Can somebody explain the benefits to me please?

Definitely!

It's free and you can install absolutely everything including operating systems (of course) which can't be done in any of the sandbox programs like spoon.net and sandboxie.

And Sandboxie has a free but limited version, you have to pay to get all the benefits and avoid nag screens.
I don't get it why so many of these specialized apps exists, to install and run Virtual Box isn't that hard!

I've gotten two viruses from using Sandboxie with Firefox on a site I didn't trust. I was overconfident using it. One of them was at least from a Java exploit. Now I run Noscript as well.

Oh dear. Yet another service designed to bypass our system restrictions. TMG array admins have to work overtime to keep up with all the sites we're forced to block!

OK, so... I see yet another company doing virtual productivity application hosting... only with an idiotic angle of hosting a lot of free applications.... with the worst brand name I've ever seen on such a company.

As mentioned in the article, it is useful as a web dev to be able to test a site on many different platforms. Sure you can do it locally through a virtual machine as well, but this sounds a little easier and presumably you can test the various browsers on different OSes as well.
