Now Running Newsmonster Under Mozilla 1.2.1 for Windows
Dave Aiello wrote, "Last month I wrote about the initial release of Newsmonster, a cross-platform news aggregator that requires Mozilla and Java. I suggested that this would be a great alternative to products like Radio from Userland or Amphetadesk, because it is more cross-platform than Radio and more integrated into Mozilla than Amphetadesk."
"I bought a license for the Pro version of Newsmonster. This is the one that's supposed to be ad free and easier to install than the free version. It's definitely a breeze to install on Windows. But, I couldn't get it to install cleanly on my Red Hat 7.2 laptop."
"This is frustrating, but I understand Kevin Burton's emphasis on getting it right on the high volume user platforms before he really starts a significant effort to support the geeks. I'm going to try to use Newsmonster on my Windows 2000 desktop and report on its usefulness sometime next week. In the meantime, I would say that Linux users should be warned that there may be a good deal of head-scratching to do to get Newsmonster running. I have given up on getting it running on Linux for the time being."
