I personally prefer pine but the only problem with it currently for me 
is that I cna't figure out how to authenticate to a news server if it's 
needed.  And right now with Earthlink it's needed.  After I get 
speakeasy installed I will not need to authenticate to 
news servers so I can wait.  If there is a way to be able to 
authenticate to a news server using pine I would much appreciate knowing 
how to do this.

In short I would stick with pine.

Hi guys. Am looking for suggestions on which reader to use to read news 
I know of a few, pine, tin, trn and I think there are a few others out 
there as well.
Which ones work best for those out there who surf the groups?
