So having spent most of my life in the windows world, I find myself using my linux desktop more and more everyday to the point where I am now booting into linux as my main and running windows in VMWare for some windows specific apps.

I have a subset of RSS feeds that I used to have to keep up with the world and, in the Windows world, fell in love with FeedDemon. I haven't spent a lot of time looking at RSS aggregators for linux yet but I'm still going to solicit your feedback anyway..

Question: what is a good RSS app for linux and why?

Hi Fitz,

I have been using Akregator, nice and easy to setup, has a favorites list, came with my KDE desktop.

I've used liferea, blam and akregator. liferea and blam installed with the gnome desktop, Akregator installed with the KDE. They are all pretty good, however I just use the built in one on Opera for the most part.

I love feed demon because of sync'ing on the web as well as NetNewsWire on the iPhone. I believe I used Pan when viewing feeds on Ubuntu. It's been a while though since I don't think I'll ever go back to something that doesn't sync with the desktop and a mobile device.

*EDIT* Pan is what I used for Newsreader. Liferea for RSS.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
