Microsoft just released a new desktop feed aggregator, codename Max. Max features news displayed in a newspaper layout and two-pane interface, a bit different approach than many other aggregators on the market. MSN Filter is built-in, helping you follow the hottest news in lifestyle, music, TV, sports, technology, and movies. You can share your favorite feed items with the Filter community to help influence the recommended reading of others.
Microsoft Max is available for Windows XP SP2 and above (including Media Center). It takes advantage of some of the latest hardware and software, including .NET Framework 3.0 RC1 and the Windows Presentation Foundation. Max also features a photo organizer to bring more of your digital lifestyle into one application.
I don’t have a Windows box so I haven’t been able to play with the latest build first-hand. Windows users can download the latest Max build and play around with the software in English, German, or Japanese.
