Not everyone here uses a sparkly gui app (oex) so not everyone will

Never quite understood the "not have access to a newsreader" argument.
IIRC many of them are free. For example, I use Netscape for both mail
and news reading. It's free and works well. Is Outlook Express free? I
don't know - I hate both Outlook and Outlook Express. Then there's Free
Agent that I hear about. I assume it's free but I'm not sure. And isn't
there GNUS... And hasn't anybody ported things like tin and trn to
Cygwin yet! :-) IMHO getting a news reading client is no harder than
getting an email reading client.
