  • Your Windows 10 computer is the host.  

    If you want to run Linux in a VM, you will need to install Hyper-V or another virtualization product like VirtualBox or VMware Player/Workstation.  Once you have your hypervisor installed, you can go ahead and install Linux in the virtual machine and run it in a window on your desktop.
