Yole says he’s going to dump Syndirella because there’s another RSS reader that does things he was planning on doing. I’m going to download it and try it out myself.
The larger point, though, is that .NET must really, really rock as a development environment. Just in the area of RSS newsreaders, we’ve seen several implemented in .NET that are very impressive, have a relatively small footprint, and seem to have been written very rapidly. I’m not one to heap praise upon Microsoft, but the proof is in the pudding. People are writing really nice software using .NET as a platform with seemingly little effort, and I’m taking notice.
