Mac OS it's self is a type of linux I think? But what do you mean can OSX run on linux? Like a virtual machine? or do you mean installing a separate partition on your hard drive and installing linux on it?

The difference between Linux and Max OS X is the kernel. Linux uses the kernel from kernel.org as basic operating system but Mac based on the BSD Kernel. This is the reason between this two philosophies that mac os cannot run on linux kernel. These are completely different Operating Systems. You can install Linux on an virtual Machine of course, but this does make not sense because the utilization between Mac and Linux are very close. If you know something about Linux (especially Command Line), you can use it on Mac OS too.
