Personally I read my feeds in Google Reader and when I am on Windows I prefer Feeddemon as it syncs my feeds with Google Reader.
But for Linux I think Liferea is the best. Following it is Akgregator.

I used to use Opera to read my feeds. However, I recently discovered Bam, which I really like. It’s neat, simple, and isn’t overblown by features that I’ll never use.
