    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know if there is a 64 bit Newsreader for Windows 7 64 bit?

    My old 32 bit Reader is slow.

    There is absolutely no need for a 64 bit program to read news.

    ....and, it's not going to be any faster just because is 64 bit
    vs. 32 bit.

    You might want to update your Thunderbird to the latest version.

    I guess you're confused. No wonder. You use Ubuntu. Oops.

    Hi, John.

    Which newsreader are you using?

    As the others have said, here and in the other NG where you posted your
    question, there are no 64-bit newsreaders yet - and there may never be any.
    Well, some day, all software will migrate to 64-bit, I suppose, just as it
    migrated to 16-bit and then to 32-bit. But because of the relatively
    low-tech job a newsreader does, there probably would be no advantage in a
    64-bit over a 32-bit newsreader.

    There are dozens of good newsreaders available now, so please don't feel
    that you are stuck with the one you have! Tell us what you have and you
    will likely get LOTS of advice (both good and bad). It might help if you
    also tell us about your hardware.

    Mint is just Ubuntu with a new name. So why did they need to create Mint?
    Why didn't they use their so called expertise and work on one distro?

    Biggest single factor affecting usenet speed is the quality of provision
    of the news feeder service, IME.

    WRONG.

    So 500 inferior distros of Linux is smart? HA HA HA HA HA HA. All you get
    is confusion in the marketplace. No wonder Linux stays at less than one
    percent.

    Wait a week. 10 more distros will be introduced to confuse everyone. Alias
    will move to the next failure!

    As far as I am aware this one:
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.7)
    Gecko/20100727 Lanikai/3.1.1

    Is a 64bit newsreader based on Thunderbird but is still work in
    progress.

    I don't know for sure, but I don't know of any 64-bit newsreaders. And
    since I'm afraid that newsgroup use is dying, I doubt very much if we
    will see many, even in the future.


    > My old 32 bit Reader is slow.




    I greatly doubt that a newsreader's being 64-bit would make it any
    faster. And by the way, I use Forté Agent 6.0, and I find its speed
    just fine.

    Really? Try pulling a few days worth of headers for boneless and see what
    happens.

    To answer the original question, Newsbin has a 64bit version.

    Xnews. x32 not x64.

    http://xnews.newsguy.com/

    It's a super feature/filter rich Usenet newsreader. Free. Speedy. Super
    high learning curve. Zero glitz interface.

    Hasn't failed me up to Win7 x64, but it's x32.

    I use the current test version.

    NOT bloatware! Lean and mean!!!

    I don't know what "boneless" is but I do know a fair amount about
    computers and you will NEVER need what a 64 bit program does for reading
    and replying to news in usenet.
