★ On Mac RSS Readers

When asked why there are so many RSS readers for the Mac compared to Windows given their relative market share, Brent Simmons of Ranchero Software says:

DrunkenBlog: RSS for Mac OS X Roundtable: “It’s mostly because Mac users like to try cool, new, interesting things — especially things that help them get more done in less time. Windows users, it seems to me, have endless patience. They reboot their systems, run virus scanners, go nuts fixing weird conflicts. With that kind of patience, surfing in your browser from site to site isn’t that bad. But Mac users want things to work, and they want their software to help them get things done, and they like trying new and different things.”
