Minecraft Linux Server

Go to solution Solved by Nayr438,

Really anything Linux. Ubuntu Server and CentOS are good options. If you need a Desktop Environment, I would probably grab Lubuntu or Xubuntu.

Anyone has any suggestions on what OS would be good to make a low power Minecraft server. The pc I'm using has an Intel Core i5-3360M, 8GB DDR3 Ram and a 500 GB hard drive. This is not permanent its just for me and my little niece to play on temporarily.

Xubuntu is a good place to start, it's low enough overhead, and still mostly familiar enough to windows users.

Here's is a Debian based MC server distro that works pretty much out of the box. You can run it headless and use a webUI to manage it.
