I think of VDI, virtual desktop infrastructure as virtual desktop, ie connecting to your desktop in the cloud accessed from a thin client.

VM is just a virtual machine, could be vdi, or a server.

Basically VM is a virtual Desktop in side another OS i.e. VMware Workstation. VDI is a data center technology which distributes Virtual Desktops to clients while it is actually running in the data center tather then the computer itself.

VDI uses terminal services and vm is entirely different where resources can be shared, VM you have allocate dedicated one and where used for only one dedicated machines.
