Most everyone will want to have a Unix virtual machine on their Mac, but if there is a need for Windows inside your VirtualBox (or other VM), Microsoft offers a version of Windows so we don't have to spend $159.99 for a legal copy just, as their website says, "support the Windows 10 media creation tool." I'm guessing that they mean testing websites using Microsoft Edge.

Here is a nice write up of the process of the entire virtual event. How to Run Microsoft Edge Web Browser in Mac OS X
Free means not activating the installation. There may be downsides to that, but most people in the 'every once in a while for testing' world won't notice. It has long been the practice of Microsoft to allow users to test the OS before buying, but sometimes you just don't know where to look through the forest of spam and trojan traps to find the One Safe One.
Good luck to us all.
