.net on the desktop is dead

today, my feed reader died. it only showed me an empty window where my feeds should be:

RSS Bandit

so i tried google reader again. amazingly, it felt more responsive than RSS Bandit. my archive of read posts is in the thousands. i like having access to them, and often use them in searches. this puts a heavy toll on memory usage:

RSS Bandit memory hog

what hope is there for .net if an application written by a microsoft employee is such a memory hog, and gets its clock cleaned by an online application? none.
