  1. Puppy is a great OS and it’s desktop works well. I have used it on a really old HP laptop with 128MB of RAM and an Asus 901 net book.

  2. Deluge is definitely worth a look. There is 3 things that are neat with it :

    1- It support Socks proxy with authentication, so you can torrent anonymously (to my knowledge this is not supported by Transmission)
    2- It as a console interface (package: deluge-console)
    3- It as a web interface (package: deluge-web)

    The web interface is really great. You can start the deluge daemon on one computer and manage you torrents from anywhere in the house with a browser. If you have a VPN or if you are willing to open a port in your firewall you can manage your torrent from anywhere in the world!
