I was think that one think i would like to see in puppy is ndiswrapper to use windows drivers and WIN.E. Personally this would help me because i am using and old computer in my room that does not have an ethernet port to plug a router into and i have to use a wireless usb card that most version of linux dont support expeally puppy and dsl. If this was included i could use puupy as the main OS.

Puppy already has ndiswrapper, or at least the modules (so you need to compile the driver stuff on another distro, but it can use them). I don't know about 1.0.4 and prior, but 1.0.5a2 with the dev suit can compile them. Ndiswrapper is how I'm able to get on the net.
