I don't want the computer to be a server. It's supposed to become my main

After my router (which has a Geode LX 800) had a 1/10 of the Whetstone score
of my laptop, I decided to buy a Intel Atom based system, because the PPW
ratio is much higher. I currently consider buying a T7-330 Atom Barebone
[1]. It's quite cheap and meets most of my requirements, although I'm not
really satisfied.

You probably won't make any profit with exotic operating systems ;). Moreover,
I don't see the need for a separate file server in system with only one user.
