5. Acknowledgements

First of all, I'd like to thank the creators of these newsreaders for keeping Usenet alive. Hopefully they will release their products open-source.

I'd also like to thank Vancouverite and the other people in the Gentoo forum message who described how to run Xnews under Wine using Windows 98SE files. I built this whole HOWTO on that information.

I'd like to thank Greg Ferguson, Tabatha Marshall, and Mark Garboden of the Linux Documentation Project for helping me submit my first HOWTO. Greg Ferguson translated my first document from plain text to XML.

Also, thanks go out to the people in news.software.readers for working with me on this HOWTO, and to Usenet users everywhere for keeping the protocol alive in the midst of ad-filled, license-binding, scattered Web forums.
