comment How to download old version of Mac OS X that I own and App Store lists, but App Store refuses on newer Mac
When I filter that list for "os x mountain lion" I get no offers to download the entire OS installer. I see five downloads for updates not original installers.

This Answer is indeed the only option I've found. I tracked down a friend with an older Mac, used the Guest user account to log into my Apple App Store account, then used App Store app to download the ≈ 5 gig file for the Mountain Lion installer app. I also had to provide the borrowed Mac’s admin user name and password because I was downloading an OS installer. The installer auto-launches, but you can quit the installer before it does anything.

I'm trying to install the older Mac OS X versions into a virtual machine (Parallels, VirtualBox, Fusion).

Not directly relevant, but my motivation is to install the older OS into a virtual machine (Parallels) for developing and testing software. Apple does not make this easy. Ironically, Microsoft makes this testing chore super easy by providing pre-configured virtual machine files ready to run in Parallels/VirtualBox/Fusion for a variety of current and older versions of Windows ( XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 ) at no cost.

The developer.apple.com page no longer offers old versions. Only current (Yosemite) and beta (El Capitan) are listed for download.

comment Anti-virus comparison for Mac OS X
Formerly free of cost, but now is an inexpensive commercial product. See vendor explanation. Please update Answer; StackExchange blocks my attempts to do so.
