Not a program but a website.

https://distrotest.net/

Let's you test out hundreds of types of Linux distros in a browser virtual machine. Although there is significant lag.

Thought it's really cool.

Not sure if this is useful for anyone else, but in Windows 10 if you hit Windows+Shift+S it will allow you to snip a screen shot using your mouse
Super useful!  I did not know this and it will save me lots of time.  TY!

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
