What am I missing out if I'm not using a VM/Container for my development setup?

What up peeps.

For the past few weeks, I've dabbled and played around with Docker and Homestead just to see what's in store. But still, I can't see how much I'm gaining for the effort when my current setup (locally installed PHP7.2+Postgres+Redis etc. on a Linux box which is pretty much identical to my production setup) already works. Can someone fill me in? Maybe I'm looking at it the wrong way.

Thanks for your input!
