What works

The entire application appears to work correctly. I was quite impressed.

- Server Management
- Newsgroup Management
- Searching / Filtering
- Mass Downloading and Decoding
- Image thumbnail previews of downloaded image sets
- SSL Encryption to NNTP server
- Serial # Registration for Registered User

What does not

A few times, while "maximizing" the app locked and has to be killed with SIGKILL. May have been an issue with XGL rather than WINE


What was not tested

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

While the interface is slightly sluggish compared to running under windows XP, I was able to get 800kbps+ downstream from easynews. This same PC under WindowsXP has never gotten better thn 650kbps down from the same server
