Just switched to Linux,

Had to due to having problems with windows, not being able to use my OEM disks that came with it due to motherboard change for a reboot. etc..

Well what ever life goes on and I am all about trying new things, especially when they don't cost me a thing.

So when I was using windows I used a program called Grabit for checking out newsgroups, I thought it worked quite well.

Now that I no longer have windows I have to find a new reader,

Any suggestions?

I looked through the Linux software lists and there seems to be lots of programs, just wondering which one I should try first.

Thanks

Yuck...
After some reading it looks like hellanzb is the Linux solution for Grabit.
Check it out:

It also depends on what you use the newsreader for. Pan is great for downloading lots of images. Some are more geared to text.
