What mike_2k said. With VirtualBox, you can install most any Linux distribution. On my Win7 work system, I run both Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 and CentOS 5 without problems. The RHEL 6 vm is my main software development environment for work. The CentOS image is for porting software between RHEL 5 and RHEL 6 systems, both of which we use in our data centers.
