OSX Mavericks still without RSS Reader integrated in

This is one of those simple things still does not support (after Lion). I am unsure why it has not been included but if you use Mail with Exchange then you will be able to read RSS with the below *only* if you have outlook client side constantly pulling the RSS which makes this method not practical really unless Microsoft would support pulling the RSS from server side:
  1. Add the feed via Outlook from a Windows machine. Check the Account Settings in Outlook looking for the RSS Feeds tab and "change" your feed to make sure it has the correct "update limit". In my case for Mediawiki I found that the default stopped the feed from being refreshed so I unchecked the "Use the publisher update recommendation". I had to "Send/Receive tab | Send & Receive group | Send/Receive | Define Send/Receive Groups | Group Name | All Accounts | Schedule an automatic send/receive every n minutes check box | When Outlook is Offline | Schedule an automatic send/receive every n minutes"
  2. See the feed inside the "RSS Feeds" folder in
