RSSOwl | RSS / RDF / Atom Newsreader 1.1.2
RSSOwl | RSS / RDF / Atom Newsreader - RSSOwl is a free RSS / RDF / Atom Newsreader written in Java using SWT as graphic library.
RSS ("Really Simple Syndication" or "Rich Site Summary") is a document specification
that gives users the power to collect and organize Web-based news and information in
a more efficient manner. Applications that collect data from RSS-compliant sites are
called RSS readers or "aggregators". RSSOwl is such an application. It lets you gather,
organize, update, and store information from any compliant source in a convenient, easy
to use interface, save selected information in various formats for offline viewing and
sharing, and much more.
Why "Owl"? The owl is a traditional symbol of wisdom, and a quiet, efficient hunter. You'll find
RSSOwl's "big eyes" a big help when scanning the Web's vast array of RSS resources.

I downloaded RSSOwl (version 2.0.4, exe file), but after initializing the RSSOwl setup and installing it the program failed to run. Any suggestions on this matter will be appreciated.

Pretty good aggregator
I was looking for an RSS reader which would actually aggregate all my feeds into one stream. So many readers just list items in a folder structure only.

Does not run
I tried it on an OS/2 machine that routinely runs Java programs, but it would not even load, aborting without any visible error message.
