comment What are the minimum system requirements for ultimate edition 4.2
The OS will just run fine. I assume you also want to play games when you install this kind of distro, so that depends a lot on your graphics card and the requirements of the game. In this sense, the question is not really answerable for us.

I get that you're using a debian derivative, but which distribution exactly? package management is where they might differ

Yes, only the former (and also no REST of course). I'm not sure if there exists any cron which has this option. What you can always do is wrap the command you want to run into a shell script, and specify by yourself what success means, write that to the disk (e.g. /root/.jobstatus) and check that file the next time you run the script.

you are looking for an asynchronous cron. Here's a list (easiest to hardest). I'm using the easiest one (cronie)

comment If I install malicious software what may it do?
Your question is very broad/vague, but I think the first part is interesting (if dpkg could already execute malicious code in file.deb).
