Virtual Desktop vs Virtual Machine

I am trying to understand the differences between VDI and VMs.

I have read this:

And the basic takeaway im getting is that a VM is hosted on my computer, whereas as VDI desktop is hosted on a server that I can remotely connect to. Is there any significant difference in the underlying architecture of how the guest OS is running on the host?

Also how is a virtual desktop different from a virtual machine?
