Yes, I am using Gmane. In fact practically all Linux related lists I
follow using it.

I'm still mostly using Pan, but this post I am making using
Claws-Mail. Yes, it is not bad at all for my purposes. 

Much better then Thunderbird with its crazy font size "free dance" and
it does not close group pane on its own volition as Pan does. Boy, that
"feature" of Pan drove me nuts lately. And somehow it closes group pane
or at best reduces it size, all at a sudden, almost exclusively when I
am reading 'debian.users' list. Pan is a good reader but I get sick and
tired spending about 1/3 of my time fishing out the group pane it
closes.
