We've been using Netmanage's Intranet Forum Server comercial version that
is part of the intranet server package for $495. We run a full news feed
from sprint, have a multi-controller, multi-drive scsi subsystem, and it's
blazingly fast. It uses the same configuration files as NNS (which are a
little confusing) but I've heard that they're coming out with a standalone
gui server in the near future. I don't know much about DNEWS but if you
want to run a full news feed I don't see what it can do that NNS can't.
