"Puppy is uniquely effective with slow or unreliable internet connections. It manages connections and prompts servers when problems occur. I have a friend who has poor line quality -- and few options, living in a rural area. He runs Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Windows XP SP3, and Puppy 5. He favors Puppy because of its more reliable internet connectivity."
