BYOD (ideas, opinions, whatever)

But I would like to understand what other members think of the idea/approach, if they have any experience (poositive/negative/neutral) about it, etc.
Some "introductory" reference:
And some personal ideas on the matter:

Now from the corporate/enterprise side of the equation. Knowing, John Q. Averages computing habits and skills, would you want your sensitive data on their hardware? I doubt it.
Now, if the employee does not handle sensitive data and the employee is willing to accept the snooping and the possible loss of all their data, then maybe.
Just my $0.02 worth, and worth just what you paid for it, nothing.

We tried it with VMs, but that radically increases the price to just about the point of two computers and non-tech people find VMs very difficult to operate, even if we leave hints like customized backgrounds and/or different themes.
The issue is not that much better with Macs, especially Macs that have been through the upgrade process, which doesn't work any better there than it does with Windows.
BYOD works best with tablets, which are significantly more locked down than PCs by default. But this tablet usage assumes the infrastructure already exists. For example, Salesforce's mobile version is competent. I expect to see more in the future but don't see how tablets, BYOD or not, graduate from companion devices. In our office, the iPads, which we provided, went from "I love it so much and use it for everything" to "I use it to check email on the road". After the initial euphoria wears off, which may take a few months, users start to notice suboptimal usage.
