Linux for home file and print server


New Member
I want to achieve best performance on my old netbook, I have:
  • Intel Atom N450 1,66 GHz;
  • 2 GB RAM;
  • 100 Mbit Ethernet (might be a drawback, I know :();
  • MiniPCIe slot;
  • SD/MMC card reader.
what I want to get:
  • booting only from USB or SD/MMC card, no unecessary read/write operations on internal/external hard drives (wanna use them for network drives);
  • running with no GUI at all, only command-line to save valuable processor ticks;
  • sharing USB printer for every wi-fi device connected to my network;
  • configuring, fixing and adding features via Windows/Android devices;
  • having everything stable'n'secure.
Looking for bunch of tutorials which make it possible to work.
Will Debian 10.2 be the best choice?

Just about any Linux will do this. The thing that will matter more than the Linux version is...
what kind of printer?
