This question is off topic. However, I would specifically like the
opinions of RC users as I believe it takes a special kind of person to
appreciate the delicate balance between usability and creaping

I am on the prowl for a new threaded news reader. I am looking for one
that has the simple-but-usable elegance of RC. I have been using TIN
which comes close, but the current beta has an annoying bug and I am
tired of waiting for it to be fixed. (The previous version also has
its annoying problems.) I have investigated Gnus and find it to be
*the* prototype for creaping featuritis. Worst of all, it is very slow
on my machine. What news readers do you use and why do you like them?
What are their disadvantages? Last of all, where can one obtain the
sources for them?

Thanks in advance for your opinions (including dissenting ones).
