Greetings, I should be getting SQL server developer delivered today in the mail, curious as to what the group thinks are the best practices with it as I am just learning SQL.

Also, I've setup a virtual environment through virtual box (host and guest both windows 7 64bit)… are there any benefits in setting up a server in the virtual environment as opposed to my machine?

Any advice would be appreciated!

If you are doing it strictly for development purposes, then there shouldn't be any problem with just running a local instance of sql server.

Personally, I run everything inside virtual machines so that I can get a little more structure and test how machines will interact with each other. I've gone as far as to configure a virtual domain, in order to test AD security etc. I also like the ability to snapshot machines, and revert to them when testing out methods that could end up making a mess. In my own department I have been advocating the use of virtual machines for sql development.

Why is it that people who can't take advice always insist on giving it? - James Bond, Casino Royale

The more experience and exposure the better, thanks for the advice!
