Default A New Light!

Sorry for cheesy title. At years end I'm building a server for Media, Minecraft, Maybe Nextcloud/Owncloud and some other funn things down the road. My Problem is I'm now stuck at an OS and Solution to use. I Have my eyes on Proxmox but also on Ubuntu server with Docker. ESXi Could also be an option but I've never tinkered with that. I'm kind of shooting for opinions here and wondering how you guys have done it.

My use case scenario is way different than most so after an initial fail with Unraid I went straight WIndows.

I have updates disabled on the one WIndows 7 box, and on the Windows 10 boxes I have updates scheduled.
