    I have a Mac Mini, windows box, and a linux laptop. I have quite a few RSS feeds that I subscribe to, and enjoy keeping up to date with the news. However, I only have Vienna on my mini to read RSS feeds. I would like to install programs on my window box and my laptop as well, but I would hate to have to go over and re-read or re-mark articles as read. I would like to be able to read an article on my mini, and have the laptop and windows reflect that. I don't mind giving up Vienna on the mini to do it, although if I can keep it I would prefer that :)

    Thanks

    I use Bloglines. It probably doesn't have as many features as some RSS readers, but it's entirely web-based and does a good enough job for me. Sometimes old stories will show up as unread, and someones a feed won't show up at all, but all-in-all it saves me from having to deal with separate setups on multiple computers.

    Hmm that reminds me of Google Reader. I'll give it a try and see if that suits me. Thanks!

    I had the same problem until Google Reader came along. While it isn't quite perfect (what is though) it does allow me to keep up to date on whatever computer I am on.

    Netnewswire has syncing features, but it will only work between macs. It does exactly what you want though.

    After toying with google I'm not a huge fan of the interface (very confusing for me - surprising for a google interface) and the download of articles seems to be out of date by several hours.

    If I had an iBook I'd be set :rolleyes:
