I think public server doesn't need GUI. Let me explain. What actions do you need to do?

  • change files - it can be done via repositary (for example GIT)
  • start, restart, stop - it can be done via command line or via script or web script (for example PHP)
  • database access - via VPN through any common database application (for example Navicat, SQLyog)
  • firewall system settings - via command line (propably one-time setup)

In my opinion remote desktop with Ubuntu is quite unstable. Better solution is to use Windows Server 2008 R2. There is also problem with RAM consumption, you could use it to increase maximum players slot cap instead.
I agree, however with linux you can turn all that off once you are done and it will be like you never installed the gui. I merely use that way to setup my server faster.
If you need help with Linux pm me.
