    I am looking for a nice (and free) RSS feed reader thingy .... Netnewswire lite cannot be found anymore and the $30 for v2.1 for mac is too steep (though its a nice reader).

    What are you using for RSS reader, besides Safari?

    Vienna

    Free, open-source. It took some getting used to after NetNewsWire... but now I would prefer Vienna over NNW anyday.

    That topic scared me . . . I love NetNewsWire Lite, although I'm tempted to give Vienna a shot

    My only gripe with Vienna thus far is the lack of a toolbar menu. I'm used to using my mouse to sort through articles in NetNewsWire and this doesn't seem very practical in Vienna

    You can re-sort the news column via the an option in the View menu.

    For me, I've never needed to switch sorting methods, so this was not inconvenient at all. Also, check out the 2.1 beta, it's a big update, there might be something to suit your needs there.
