My major complaint about modern Linux distros  is there dependency on
broadband to keep them up to date. 
In my case, some one has to travel 30 miles or more to the locale
library, to do updates, and then come back to our rural area and use
aptoncd to transfer the updates to other systems.
If your a windows user, your stuck.
Even with a 56k modem, we a lucky to get more that 33k modem speeds, and
the further you are away from the exchange the lower the speed drops.
There are many occasions that I have had to get out my old zyxel 128k
and use that.
Most of our copper wire network is strung on telephone poles, and is
waxed paper wrapped.  That is if the wrapping is still there.

welcome to reality!  :-)
