You can run virtual machines with any operating system. You still have to acquire that operating system.

If you'd like to run Linux inside your host OS (usually Mac OSX or Windows), you can use freely available ISOs from all popular Linux distributions, including OSE Linux Here are a few suggestions below:

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

If you're a Mac user, you can use the original installation DVD that came with your computer, to mount in VirtualBox.

Microsoft now offers Windows 10 ISOs for free [1]. This does not expire, but if you are trying to download Windows 10 from an existing Windows 10 computer, you'll need to change the User-Agent in the Browser if you do this.[2]

You can also use Wine to run Windows programs without having Windows OS installed.
