Subject: [gentoo-user] Graphical usenet client - alternative to Knode
Date: Tue, 23 Feb 2010 06:03:27
Message-Id: 67701443-6E08-476C-AF00-5F6BB156E643@stellar.eclipse.co.uk
Some comments were made recently about KDE4, where it was advised  
"don't try using just Kmail under a different window manager - use the  
whole KDE environment, but not single apps. Use something else instead  
of Kmail".

I kept my gob somewhat shut at that time, because I've been using  
Knode for a long time on my headless server. I ssh in from my Mac and  
open Knode in X11.

I guess Usenet isn't so popular these days, and I have never been able  
to find a Mac native client that I'm happy with.

I like Knode's simple 3-pane layout. Knode has improved visually with  
the KDE4 release, but the much debated KDE4 dependencies thing.

It has only just occurred to me today to ask if there's an alternative  
that looks & acts just the same, but which isn't part of the whole  
KDE4 environment.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Stroller.
