Perhaps this is considered too frivolous a question, but I'm trying to set up a Minecraft server on ec2. I've been doing micro instances for now, because I want to see how well it works before committing to pay for it.
Everything needed to host the minecraft server is in a dropbox folder.
I run windows 7. I Run a MineCraft server, but I can only host around 9 players before lag appears. I heard that Ubuntu can run a server with much better performance than win7. I kind of like the whole idea of Ubuntu, but I don't want to change my OS to unix or anything. Basically, my question is, does running a server (specifically and minecraft server) run easier and faster on a Ubuntu server?
I have a 4gb Ram, intel Core 2 3.16 ghz E8500 and windows Vista (Dell Optiplex 755)
how much could this pc do as a server for minecraft? amount of players, lag etc? how many servers/worlds could I have at once, bukkit, vanilla maybe modded too?
