NewsMonster is very promising, but still not ready. I've installed it three days ago and then uninstalled after it fired stupid errors ('Drive D: empty, please insert a disk') on startup. Uninstalling itself, it also took all my right-click menu extensions with it. And worst of all, it can't create subscription categories (when you have more than 20 feeds you need different folders). I'm still waiting, and I'm confident NM will be a great app in 6 months, but not now.
