The Microchip PIC32MZEC and PIC32MZEF, used on Digilent’s WiFIRE boards, are configured without MMU which is required in order to run Linux.
Nevertheless, there is a new Microchip PIC32 Starter board based on the Microchip PIC32MZDA (http://www.microchip.com/design-centers/32-bit/architecture/pic32mz-da-family / http://www.microchipdirect.com/ProductSearch.aspx?Keywords=DM320008), based on the PIC32MDEC that uses the MIPS microAptiv core with the required configuration for Linux. Furthermore, the support for this board had been added to the Linux stream, see more details here: https://lwn.net/Articles/670949/
On the other hand, the PIC32MZEC and PIC32MZEF can run various RTOS, including FreeRTOS, as described here: https://microchip.com/harmony:overview-freertos (and this is part of the Lab 13 of the Connected MCU Lab course)
