• Win9x newsreaders

    As much as I like the user interface of Outlook Express for reading email,
    it doesn't make for a very good newsreader. Since this is currently the main method I have of connecting to this BBS till dialup support rolls around, do you guys know of any good newsreaders for Win9x?

    Have you tried any of these?

    Well, no, but I know all of those well enough to know that most of
    those are ports from *NIXes or are too new to run on win9x without
    kernel modifications.

    Though this is now rendered moot because I have finally gone and
    procured a Mac->PC null modem cable, and now I run my own PPP server
    and can just use the Mac for everything.

    Thanks, though!
