    I think Unison is the best newsreader I've ever used on any platform.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I like and use Thunderbird. It's free and has versions for Linux and Windows as well as OS X. The package also includes a fairly good Mail client.

    To cwa107: Unison is indeed a good newsreader. I used Agent for many years while diddling around the groups in Windows. It was my favorite newsreader until they added so much fluff it became difficult (for me anyway) to use.

    Regards.

    Is a newsreader the same as a RSS reader?
    If so, I really like NewsFire, it looks like this.

    The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

    No. Newsgroup Readers are nntp clients, not RSS clients. NetNewsWire and NewsFire are RSS clients.

    Personally, I use MT-Newswatcher. Unison is probably nicer, but it costs money. Thunderbird is...well, a nice email client, but NNTP seems like an afterthought.
