What is your favorite GPL'd newsreader
Well I'm linux only now. Before I used xnews (I know I could use it via wine, but I'd like something gpl).
I've been looking around and pan seems highly recommended for binaries...but it's performance (running on breezy 64) is poor. It gobbles about 1000mb of ram just trying to list groups with a lot of messages.
Anyway, I'm wondering for those who download binaries, do you use a reader and then a tool like nget?
Or is there some sort of app that is similar to xnews (I'd prefer gtk, but textmode would be fine too) that caters to binary downloaders but doesn't eat huge amount of resources...
The idea of copyright did not exist in ancient times, when authors frequently copied other authors at length in works of non-fiction. This practice was useful, and is the only way many authors' works have survived even in part. -- Richard Stallman
