While surfing the web before getting really starting with work this morning, I discovered the existance of a promising RSS aggregation tool running on Windows called Beaver. While it can’t beat NetNewsWire for Mac OS X by any means, it does its job well, but there is a huge drawback – a miserable performance.
In fact, this is the first serious .Net application I’ve seen so far and I must say, I was surprised how bad the .Net framework performs on a 1 GHz Intel machine. Maybe it’s just the fact that it’s running on Windows 98, but Java applications do quite a better job regarding speed and responsiveness in the same environment.
