While it isn't officially supported, we have many users who successfully run NewsBin under Linux with a Windows emulator (Wine is the most popular). This forum exists for you Linux guys to share your experience getting NewsBin running on Linux as well as report any strangeness that we may or may not be able to fix. DThor is the resident expert.

I am running newsbin in crossover pro (the newest) on my macbook (OSX 10.5.6). It works okay, but download speed is slow. I rarely get more than 500 kilobyte a second. If I fire up unison on my mac I can max out my 20mbit line.
So there seem to be some preformance bottleneck in crossover, have anyone else seen this problem?

Not Me. I'm presently pulling 3.1Mbps with Crossover on a Suse 12.1 Box and giganews.

I'd check the usual suspects.
It's less likely to be network and more likely to be disk IO. What does the "cache" line show on the status bar? If it's 0/100 then your disk is the bottleneck.
