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?

Questions on Ask Ubuntu are expected to relate to Ubuntu within the scope defined in the FAQ. Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope. Read more about closed questions here.
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.
