    For this tutorial we'll be using Pan Newsreader and the Linux Distro called Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex).

    1) Installing Pan

    A lot of people uses linux just because it looks nicer and because of the nice animations (compiz), not to get away from windows.

    Not true imo, if that was the only reason those people would have switched to Apple's Mac OSx first befor considering Linux.

    By the way, thanks for this crystal clear Pan Newsreader tutorial! Very very much appreciated, cheers.

    I used to use pan but it's unmaintained, so now I use sabnzbd. NZBGet is another good one, although Ithink the web interface for sabnzbd is better.
