any ideas where I can get Linux from as I'm wanting to start a Minecraft server. Also what sort of specs would I need for a Minecraft server with Linux?

Linux does not need much to drive it, it's not like windows bogged down with bags of coal. You can use just about anything

Server depends on your ISP and quality of Phone lie. unless you are on cable

Yh thats it, when i tried on win 7 with 1.5GB it was like 1 frame every 10 seconds for the server so hopefully it will be alot better with linux

There are so many it can confuse you.
Do you want to run a Linux OS along side Windows or just run the server ?

Some specs about the computer you want to use would be useful. In particular the cpu and amount of RAM.
I've looked at some other details with regard to Minecraft and Ubuntu seems to the most favourable.

RAM: 1.5GB DDR400
CPU: Pentium 4 2.8ghz Single core
GPU: Radeon 9200 se 128MB

Just for the server.
