I've used both and both have problems with more recent Windows
versions, though I don't remember what they are right now. I still
prefer Gravity (over Agent) for binaries and still have it on my
desktop. However, I don't do much with Usenet binaries anymore.
I tried it.
Clicking on the d/l link sends you off to a couple of places; eventually,
you get a d/l but it's a web-type installer, not the program.
Clicking on the installer sends you off to cyberspace and the program is
downloaded; to install it, one has to agree to their TOS which includes
collecting info; they also want to reset your home page and install a
browser helper. I declined.
However, I did find something called oeclassic v1.90. It is NOT OE, seems
to be a third party program styled after and closely resembling OE. It has
most of OE's features but not all; however, it does what I want - email,
newsgroups and HTML - so I may keep it.
For anyone interested, 14MB installed...
