here is the deal. We run the Java version because its the most feature complete and most accessible (Windows, Linux, Mac). Also we have had a server going in one form or another since before there was Windows 10, let alone a windows 10 build of Minecraft. Additionally run the Spigot version so we can run plugins / mods, not many but some slight tweaks to the game to make it a little more chill to play. Lastly "traditional" Minecraft (Spigot, Forge, Bukkit, etc) have slightly better support from the administration tooling were using to run the show. I've considered spinning up a Genisys
server (I run this one at home) but we don't really have any players all that interested in it as opposed to classic Minecraft to justify the additional administrative overhead for the time being.
Minetest is an interesting project but last time I looked it wasn't even close to feature parity (horses for example) and again lacks an ecosystem of adminastative tooling around it (we use AMP
for those who are interested which also give us the ability to host a few other games along side Minecraft if the interest is there). This has the added benefit of being able to distribute administration of the server to other "trusted" players should I not be available to deal w/ it w/out having to walk anyone through navigating a bash shell.
On a marginally more related note my own anecdotal experience suggests if you really want fat performance in Minecraft your better off w/ a lot of RAM and a decent GPU, especially if you also run OptiFine
In conclusion, if your thinking of buying this (or any CPU) to bolster your experience in Minecraft then (much like other games) your money may well be better off invested elsewhere. That said if your running a server then the server will eat all the CPU you can throw at it and then some.
Edit: You also cant do this
in the Windows 10 build. Also the in game chat, the chat box in Dynmap's lower left corner and the SFFn IRC channel (and if I'm playing Minecraft and listening to the SFFn podcast live at the same time then usually also the Discord chat) are all linked together which also isnt possible (IIRC) w/ the WIndows 10 builds. (you cant play on a Java MC server w/ the Windows 10 build -or the Raspberry pi & education builds- and same again w/ the Java build and servers for the Win10 edition).
