Should I use Folia on a server with 100-300 players?

I'm used to using Paper, but I don't know if I should start using Folia. I have 32 GB ram & 16 cores. Is it worth it or should I use maybe Purpur or Pufferfish? Also, does Folia work with plugins like Towny & LuckPerms, or any other mainstream plugins often used? Will it be able to run an average plugin or only plugins with direct Folia support?

Folia can only run plugins that are made for Folia. Plugins that were designed for Paper will not work and will require modifications by the author. Towny supports Folia, but to my knowledge LuckPerms does not.

16 cores seems fine for Folia, but how much of a performance boosts you get depends on your server type. If your players are mostly spread out, far away from each other, then you'll probably see a performance benefit. If all players are clumped together, then you'll probably not see an improvement.
