An additional interface is also handy if virtualize Windows or another OS with a product like VirtualBox. Rather than use NAT or bridge the virtual's nic to your main NIC, you can bridge the virtual to it's very own separate network interface. Since I use VPN on the XP I'm running in VirtualBox, bridging rather than NATing is a must and I don't have to worry that it will futz up the networking on the host OS.
