Virtual Machine count in KMS

All the while I thought that KMS need at 5 least physical to activate the server role or 25 physical client to activate the client OS but today I found out something difference.

 Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 SP2, and the release of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: Virtual computers count toward the activation threshold for KMS. For more information about activation thresholds, see the Volume Activation Planning Guide. In addition, the following white paper, which outlines the changes in SP2, has recently been posted to the Microsoft Download Center: Volume Activation Changes for Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.
