Another part is that NNTP just transmits the content, forums send a bunch of junk along with it. The main part though is that NG's allow much richer clients. With a forum, no Internet connection right now == nothing at all. The client I use is just fine running off line. Also it will auto check for new post, download them, sort them, search them, go back and, in one fell swoop, get the last 65K posts. > > The reason why I ask is I'd like to write RSS output for TracForums > sometime in the future.
