It's quite common. I've worked at several companies, including BSkyB where the developer team is supported by a devops team - the devops write Vagrant scripts which bootstrap a VM that closely mimics the production environment and include all the necessary services ready to run such as nginx and php or ruby, meanwhile the devs all work on Macs and have enough command-line-fu to do development work, but certainly not enough to provision a Linux virtual machine and set up said services.
