asNews is a simple news retrieving and parsing program which gets the news from the net and shows it in your desktop. It's currently able to fetch the news from Freshmeat, LinuxToday, Slashdot, Segfault, KDE, LinuxApps, BBC, CentralEurope, 7AM, LinuxDev, GeekNews, IceWalkers, AppWatch, Hotwired and Mozilla. It also has two GTK-based X11 interfaces: a very simple one used for easy integration with your Window Manager and a complete, comfortable GUI.
