    I'm running Fedora. Is there any decent client that a) Doesn't use a lot of ram and b) Has 10 connections c) Is still being developed.

    Thanks.

    hellanzb might suit you, since I guess you are trying to exclude sabnzbd with "c".

    SABnzbd+

    http://sabnzbd.org it's a very decent client and pretty lightweight, I use it myself and it doesn't affect my systems performance at all. Its based on python so it will work with any system capable of using python. It's also completely web-based (you manage it by using you're web browser) so you can even access it remotely if you want

    Think it's still in active development but I don't check the site that much.

    I'll give it a go. Thanks.

    Update. It's a FAQing nightmare.

    Yes, Sabnzbd+ is the way to go. When I switched to Linux I looked around for good readers. And finally got suggested Sabnzbd+, and now I"ll always use it.

    Another one that is low on CPU is Pan. There's also NNTPGrab.

    An excellent suggestion ive been using it on my Linux box with no problems.

    It's lightweight, decent gui, and supports nzb's.

    SabNZBD+ is the way to go...you can remotely control it (through HTTP).

    I highly recommend NNTPGrab if you don't want to bother with CLI but hellanzb is excellent if you are willing to manually edit the config file (which is easy as pie). Never tried SabNZBD+.

    Hellanzb (highly recommended) combined with screen and you can have a very powerful usenet downloading setup. Personally, I use sabnzbd because of the web interface but have used both clients.

    Hmm...this got me thinking, has anyone tried running Newsleecher under Wine or Cedega? I wonder if we get emulate the Windows client on a Linux setup...
