Tickr Is An Open-Source RSS News Ticker for Linux Desktops

In an era of push notifications, social media, and clickbait, cajoling us into reading the latest mind-blowing, humanity saving listicle ASAP, RSS can seem a bit old hat.

For me? Well, RSS lives up to its name of Really Simple Syndication. It’s the easiest, most manageable way to have news  come to me. I can manage and read stuff when I want; there’s no urgency to view lest the tweet vanish into the stream or the push notification vanish.
