Yes, it's possible to have two operating systems installed, but you can only run one OS at a time.

Which you would decide to select which one at BOOT of the computer, otherwise use

If you want to run two concurrently, use Virtualisation

What's wrong with Virtualisation?

With the proper hardware you can also use Hyper-V which is included with Windows 8.x Professional or Windows server 2008 and above. Or If your Host OS will be Linux, you can use KVM. Those are both type 1 hypervisors and will perform better than the type 2 hypervisors that have been mentioned up to now.

For the version of Hyper-V included in Windows 8.x Pro and above, you need a SLAT capable CPU. The current core i CPU's of intel, and also current AMD CPU's include SLAT. The Hyper-V versions included with Server OS's doesn't require SLAT, so there you can also use older CPU's. They still need integrated Virtualization technologies though. The Intel Core 2 Duo and most AMD 64 bit CPU's include those functions. Of course also the PC's BIOS will need an option where you can enable those features, as it is usually disabled by default in the BIOS.

Yes, Hyper-V is a role which is added to Windows 2012.

Windows 2012 does not support all versions of Linux.

Actually it isn't just a role you could add to 2012, but also 2008 servers. Windows 8 Pro also includes Hyper-V.

In the Server management console that automatically is displayed when you logon to a Windows 2012 server you have "Add Roles and Features", and there it is one of the Roles you can select, and in the Features under Role based administration tools, you can select the Hyper-V management tools.
