The blogged wandering of Robert W. Anderson
I thought I’d check out Microsoft Max, but Don Dodge says it doesn’t support OPML.
What? A new RSS aggregator that doesn’t even import OPML?
I’m beyond surprised, and won’t check it out. I’m sure it looks beautiful (as everyone is saying), but without OPML support what value does it bring to me?

I downloaded and installed Max. Looks great, but if you’re looking for something to read your feeds through, it is very anemic. My version of Max is now sitting on a virtual shelf. However, I will keep an eye on the future of the product.
I am not really looking for a news feed reader (I am pretty happy with FeedDemon); but, not only would I not switch to a reader that doesn’t support OPML, I won’t even bother trying it out. After all, the only way to really see if it is useful is to try it with a fair subset of your feeds. I do enough typing as it is to bother with that.
I am kind of surprised that the blogging community hasn’t hammered Microsoft for calling Max an RSS-reader without this feature.
