Snapshots in a Linear Process
One common use of snapshots is in a development process, as a way to save each step in a linear process. That way, as you add new, untested code to a project, you can always revert to a prior known working state of the project when newly added code does not work as expected.
Another example of using snapshots is a linear process is a computerized training course. You can take snapshots of each lesson starting point, so you can instantly revert to the appropriate place for each student skipping lengthy computer preparation time.
Snapshots as restore points in a linear process
VMware Workstation supports over 100 snapshots per linear process.
