I think you're right. I took the Pepsi Challenge, and Dnews appeared to
be a lot more robust than MetaInfo could even dream of being. MetaInfo
just didn't have the flexibility to allow for push or pull feeds to our
dedicated line customers like I had hoped.

Thanks for the info.

I have been using Dnews over one year,now..
using 486 dx4-100 with 52 megs ram and 6 gig of hard drive.
the best news server i have seen. I am able to leave on vacation
for 2
weeks and when i get back the news server is still running with
we have access to over 31,000 groups and have an average 15
people on
the news server at any givin time..
its great..
