I have a laptop from 2014, and idk what zorin version i install it on

my old laptop haves a 4gb, Slow hard drive and pretty slow in general, i would like
to use my old laptop as a minecraft server that runs "Paper".

can i run a minecraft server in linux easily with plugins etc without the trouble of opening terminal and all of that stuff?

also a small question, Can i use windows if i changed my mind later?

Edit:I have an i5 1.7 ghz
