    COMPLETELY FREE.

    So tell the OP that. I could care less about non-open source freeware.

    Yes I've got Word 2007 that's why I wanted the converter because I just
    got a document in .PDF that I wanted to save it in word format but cant
    copy and paste it in .PDF format

    How much less could you care? A lot, or a little? How much do you care
    now?

    I couldn't care less about the answers to these questions, but
    clarification might give others an idea of how much you care. Just in
    case they were wondering.

    Fact is hamster is good for filtering posts so you never see them - ever,
    but it's filtering capabilities are somewhat less than xnews. I know of
    *no* program that checks if a post is the first in a thread. You would
    have to write a script to artifically construct the threads for a group
    using the references header with all messages in a group. Hardly a trivial
    task or anything *any* newsreader could do.
