Advantages of VPS over dedicated server?
From what I've gathered so far, Virtual Servers are the "chunks" one dedicated server can be split in, and it stands in-between shared hosting and dedicated server hosting in terms of performance.
However, being a "virtual" server must change something in the way hosting is managed, so there could be some additional upsides to it compared to dedicated server hosting, but I'm not sure about it (I've often heard about dedicated servers needing experience with Linux, for instance), so I'd like to hear from people who had hands-on experience with it (or even simply have valuable knowledge on it).
Does VPSs hold any advantages over dedicated servers? Or is price the only reason why you wouldn't upgrade to it?

You wouldn't notice performance change between vps or dedicated server. Even in shared hosting you wouldn't mind the performance. What's your budget? Take it easy first. Maybe first start with a vps and once you're capable of moving to a dedicated server, do that. Oh and the security is far better in dedicated servers. I'm not saying that VPS security is substandard but dedicated servers security is far better.

Oh, how so? Is it because VPSs share info with other VPSs in the same physical server?

Some Virtual Servers have the advantage of being able to backup the entire server, meaning not only the data (websites, mysql, etc), but the OS, control panel, etc gets backed up to an image. So that in the rare case of a complete failure, the restore time is a lot faster. This can be done with a dedicated server as well, but often adds more of a monthly expense to the server.
Depending on your needs, Virtual Servers can often be a stepping stone from a shared hosting account to a dedicated server.

With VPS's, you don't really have to worry about managing your own server. Less risk of hardware failure. Overall a much lower cost. They can be easier to use, etc.

- cheaper price, for the host, cpanel license, etc
- less risk, than dedicated server
- can backup & restore the whole vps, if sometime happened, like using solusvm etc

Virtual private servers have many of the advantages of dedicated servers, but they are quite more affordable. With dedicated servers, you get all their resources for yourself and you don’t share them with anyone else. Dedicated servers are considered a lot more secure than VPSes. VPSes are perfect for simpler websites that receive not too high traffic and for those people who want to have root access to their server but do not want to pay a lot more money for a dedicated server. In contrast to VPSes, usually, dedicated servers require having more technical knowledge and skills.
