NetNewsNostalgia

Justin Williams quotes Brent Simmons:

In those days, Mail.app still used a drawer for the accounts/mailboxes list. One of the most common feature requests I got was to put the feeds in a drawer, like Mail, so the app would be more standard. I’m glad I didn’t listen!

NetNewsWire Lite was released in 2002. I’ve been using it and the non-Lite version ever since. The only other applications that have been continuously in my Dock since then (not counting ones I developed) are Finder, BBEdit, Terminal, LaunchBar, OmniOutliner, and iTunes. No Apple developer tools make the cut because Xcode didn’t exist then, and Interface Builder was discontinued with Xcode 4.
