If I wanted to install Ubuntu to run an VoIP Server such as FreeSWITCH, which version would you recommend I install? Would a basic Desktop do or do I have to install a server version?

If the main purpose of the machine is to be a (VoIP) server, install Ubuntu Server. Only install the (larger) Ubuntu Desktop edition if you need to use GUI tools to administer your server.
