I actually Feeds, then Mailing Lists, then NGs last. It's a client kinda
thing. For Feeds there's a million choices for clients, for me FeedDemon
does the job just wonderfully. When it comes to email, I have Outlook (now
12) and the buck stops there.

NGs though I have ThunderBird, Opera, and Outlook Express. All of them are
cluttered and ugly - with the exception of Outlook Express 7 (the Vista one)
which I have yet to seriously sit down and use. Isn't KNode for Linux? I
love Linux, but I'm largely a desktop software author/publisher, and
unfortunately, Windows is where the money is.

Yep. If you're using an RSS client from the 60s (err, y2k), it'll
dynamically support it.
Same with Atom 0.3. Atom 1.0 is amazing and, IMO, the very best feed type
out there - but's just getting supported.
