Well windwows 7 uses 2GB of ram itself so that would leave the server with only 1GB do you have a extra stick of ram?

After lots of trial and error (I am not that great with linux) I got MineOS up and running it is a lot less demanding on ram I dont have any I would need to buy some if I have to I may go that route I will see how MineOS goes without it

It seems I am a bit late to the party but my preferred OS for a minecraft server is Debian, make sure you install it without a gui and other stuff you won't need and it will run great.

Some programs that you will defiantly need if you go this way:
screens this will allow you to keep the server running without connected to it with ssh

openssh-server and an ssh client, this will allow you to connect from it remotely and transfer files, to connect and give commands I use putty to transfer files I use winscp

java this is of course for obvious reasons, jave openjdk-7 comes pre-installed and I have yet to see it causing problems make sure it is 64 bit though.

I have never used mineOS so I can't compare it.
