I think that Windows 7 was the first OS released to cheers as opposed
to "It's buggy" since maybe the Commodore 64 (the 128 was buggy).

I had considered that, but I found a beter way: Gmail. I subscribe to
the lists that I need and the Gmail interface is almost perfect for
the purpose. I don't like it for work, studies, or personal email (I
use Tbird with my own email server) but for mailing lists Gmail is far
beyond anything else.
