Every post about DJ'ing refers to MIXXX or running one of the commercial apps in a simulator.
My quest is different.
I want to take two EEE netbooks (with the ATOM chip) and use them as "turntables."
Attach a USB drive to each one with a complete catalog of identical tunes.
Attach a low cost USB sound card (like the TOPPING D30 or similar) and use VLC or similar to actually play the music.

How much could be stripped out of Ubuntu or another OS for this strict function?
Networking would never be used.

Keeping the heat down and taxing the ATOM chip as little as possible would be the key.

Anyone have ideas?

Anyone interested in doing a stripped-down ultra solid package for netbooks for this purpose?
(10 inch screens with a Solid state drive make them perfect for this use as long as you could keep the overhead down)
