    "Best newsreader"

    July 27, 2011  |   By alsandor


    Handles filters admirably and performs with nary a hiccup. Old DOS screen a plus in my mind...


    Can`t think of any. Some might have trouble with it if they are not used to setting up programs as it requires input from the user.


    I tried (and paid for) some other newsreaders and found they all had some issues that Xnews cuts through. It is no longer maintained by the developer but is still the best reader around.

    I had downloaded xnews a fews years ago but can't seem to retrrieve my data. I noticed that you are the most recent post in two yaers. Do you find it easy to use. I am mainly interested in using xnews to download piano music.
