    Hi folks,

    I'm going to switch to a mac soon and I've been looking for the windows equivalent of the programs I use.

    The only one I haven't found yet is a free nzb capable usenet client, atleast not one as convenient as GrabIt. Unison seems to be the nicest, but it isn't free. The others on the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NZB list are command line based.

    Any ideas? Recommendations? Thanks

    Thanks for the link Dalvin,

    Took a look at them; still seems Unison is ahead of the pack. Might be my first software purchase since WinXP and Office... course, they came included in the price, lol.

    You could try using Opera. It has a fully capable news client, and is capable of connecting to Usenet.

    I should've mentioned that I only use usenet for binaries. I don't believe the Opera client supports downloading em.
