I also use MT Newswatcher. It's very solid and almost bullet proof. Is
there an equivalent for PCs? I just bought a small laptop to travel with
and really miss the ease of reading new groups that I took for granted
with my Mac.
I get good results with either PAN or Thunderbird. PAN is actually
preferable for browsing graphics groups as it allows mass download of
images embedded in the postings. It is a dedicated newsreader, doing one
job, but doing it extremely well.
Both work with XP, but I cannot vouch for Vista ... my wifes machine has
a gig of ram and a 2.? gigahertz cpu and it runs like chilled molasses
next to my much more modest machine running XP. So all bets are off
I think Bill Gates left Ballmer holding the bag.
I personally use "Thoth". It is a superb Mac newsreader that excells at
uploading and downloading. The biggest problem with it is that its'
author, Brian Clark, has stopped further development. He is a little on
the cranky side. Sort of like the "Joat" of the developers world <VBG>
