Hey, so are you hosting either a computer, or public server? But not shore which core to choose, well here is the place!

Personaly i like Bukkit! But here are the pros and cons of both Bukkit, and Spigot!

-Xp orbs also merge into orbs that give more xp. In practice, you get the same amount of xp, but fewer orbs can be seen on the ground.
-Good for building
-Easier to download
To be honsest i dont know many more pros! Ask me if you know any in the comments!
-Mob farms (Endermen farms, and so on) seem to generate less mobs.
-Changes from one weather type to another happen abruptly, not smoothly. There is no transition between rain and clear weather, for instance (This may give lag spikes to computers).
-Can not handle too many plugins
-Spigot makes you join with the ONE version (like you got spigot 1.8.6, but you use minecraft 1.8.5, thats when you can not join)
-Can hold alot of memory but can not handle to many plugins
-VERY hard to learn the codes

-Can handle alot of plugins
-Weather is smooth
-Easy to learn the codes (So you can fix bugs easily yourself!)
-Bukkit is good with Multiverse (So you can switch through worlds without lag)
-Somewhat harder to hack/DDoS (DDoSing is something where you can shutdown routers & servers (not just minecraft, Like websites or YOUR WIFI!)
-If a bug is found, it dosen't take very long to fix
-Good for public servers
-May lag depending on your plugins
-Dosen't handle the Default world to well
-Dosen't handle a computer hosted world to well depending on the plugins
-Bukkit isin't avaible to download due to copyright, but there are still files of it on the internet! PM me if you want a download link as i may be able to send you one!

So really, if you want a computer hosted world, choose Spigot, if you want a private or public world, choose Bukkit!

Have Fun!

BTW here are the code to startup the servers!

Bukkit startup code
Windows: @echo off
java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true

BINDIR=$(dirname "$(readlink -fn "$0")")
cd "$BINDIR"
java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true

MAC OSX (MACS are the worst for hosting servers as a note!):
cd "$( dirname "$0" )"
java -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true

More info: [url=wiki.bukkit.org/Setting_up_a_server]http://wiki.bukkit.org/Setting_up_a_server[/url]

Spigot startup code
@echo off

java -Xms512M -Xmx1024M -XX:MaxPermSize=128M -jar spigot.jar


java -Xms512M -Xmx1024M -XX:MaxPermSize=128M -jar spigot.jar

MAC OSX (MACS are the worst for hosting servers as a note!):

cd "$( dirname "$0" )"
java -Xms512M -Xmx1024M -XX:MaxPermSize=128M -jar spigot.jar

This blog picture is a picture found on the internet on use on Pinterest! I know this has been used in another forum but that wasn't his work!

Thanks and have fun!  ♥
CreditCredit to Bukkit and Spigot for creating such awesome server cores!

The version thing at Spigot is wrong. I'm hosting with 1.8 Spigot and my friends can still join with different 1.8.x versions. 
And the startup codes can still be the same. As long as you specify spigot.jar and bukkit.jar
Ok thanks! When i used spigot, thats what happened but they may of fixed that! Thank you for the info! I'll fix that!

I don't seem to have any problems running a lot of plugins on a Spigot server. Where did you get that information from? I'm curious to know.
Just what iv learnt in the past, and theres wiki's there aswell, so yar, everything may not be 100% acurate
