It just comes equipped with all of the shit you'd like to use for it. You can put all of the same packages on a lot of Linux distros and a lot are even ported to Windows. It's mostly about preference. Best thing to do is to try them.

Sorry about that. I'm easily distracted...
There's also Damn Vulnerable Linux, which is often mentioned here. You should be able to find that one on most torrent sites.
Far from comprehensive, but I'll try to dig up more that I've seen here and there.
Some of these recommend VMWare, but VirtualBox should work. If not, you can download VMWare Player or Server for free from their website. You can also snag a free copy of their hyper-visor, which is tits.
