I have a 2 TB Hard drive (mostly used) and wish to install a Linux “distro” too along with of Windows (already installed), what do you recommend?

So should I run them both as a dual boot, maybe use virtual box, or perhaps get an SSD?

Usually it is not a Linux distro but rather GNU/Linux, see the difference by reading the article: Linux and GNU - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation

I do not recommend double operating system installations.

  1. Think what software features you need in Windows.
  2. Find replacement in GNU operating system with the Linux kernel also known as GNU/Linux[1]
  3. Delete Windows.
  4. Use only GNU/Linuxand I recommend using only fully free GNU/Linux Distributions[2]

The reasons why are explained here: What is free software?
