    I want to build a lifhtweight server to run bukkit. I'm using windows xp now but love the idea of a simple linux box doing nothing but running bukkit.

    Whats the best distro in your opinon?

    Ubuntu if you would like a very very little less performance for a lot more usability.

    CentOS for a little more performance and a little less usability.

    Go with ubuntu 10 64 bit server edition.

    If i had the machine to run that i would.

    I'm gonna try Puppy Linux on a bootable flash drive.

    Personally I like CentOS. It is not necessarily harder to use, just a little different and it does not have any less features, but it comes stripped down so you need to install pretty much everything you need yourself.

    If you use a bootable flash drive, it may be slower than just running it from XP.

    I'd HIGHLY recommend that you install the OS if you can. (I prefer ubuntu)

    Your specs == null.


    Requirements for Puppy linux is 25mb of ram and if you are typing this to me then you have that much ram.

    I've found MineOS Crux to be amazing, had my own server running for about 6 months. Of course this require a bit more knowledge about various linux commands and such.
