For better security and anonymity Whonix documentation suggests using separate workstations. Why are snapshots not mentioned at all? You could have different and fully separate snapshots of the same VM and you could maintain them separately for the duration of their lifespan. Would that be any worse than using whole separate workstations? Would it make a difference if the snapshots were created i.e. separated when Whonix ran for the first time or when the Workstation VM would have already been in use for a while and would not be in the same state as in the beginning?
Snapshots could be simpler and take up less disk space
