BottomFeeder — tried it, didn’t like it

I downloaded BottomFeeder, another RSS feed reader, and gave it a try. It’s in Smalltalk (from a company I used to work for, Cincom Systems in Cincinnati, OH (“WKRP in Cincinnati”). It installed fine but the startup directory was set incorrectly in the shortcut that the app installed. Once I corrected that it started up. The UI seems like it came out of Windows 3.1. It IS a multi-platform tool so that’s a real plus but it was just a little more difficult to navigate than FeedDemon and it doesn’t support OPML. Guess I’ll stick with FeedDemon.
