Yes, as I've read all your great responses on this, I realise that the VPS
itself doesn't have to talk, as I can SSH into it or use PuTTY, both of
which are accessible in Windows.

Thank you all.

All the best

In headless mode, the distro that you will pick is not relevent as you will
do everything from the CLI!

Managing a server from Windows or linux is doable and accessible.

Note that I do not use Vultr.
