Additional Comments

I've been running Newsrover with Wine for years, and it continues to perform flawlessly. The only burp I've been able to find is if the newsgroup is particularly large, the program will tend to hang while downloading. Just let it run and come back later. My computer has 16GB of RAM, and quad-core CPU.
