Should work fine ...

since it either comes with the necessary drivers for both Windows and Linux or it is compatible with drivers native to Linux.

In your other post you ask about a second NIC which is PCI Express (more dependable than USB) and while you probably could get it working it says that it is only compatible with Linux Kernel 2.6.29 (Support Ubuntu 2.6 only)

This one might be a better option

I'm not entirely sure how (or if) this would work, but maybe you could just use cloud printing.

be aware of any range limitation.

Does it have Bluetooth?

Personally, I do this Dell
