[REBOL] Re: evaluating for mail client

From: ammon:rcslv at: 29-Apr-2002 19:48

Hi Boris, I have been watching this thread with interest. I will give you my best description of IOS: IOS is distributed computing at its best. That is to say that it allows people to use the same files, yet work at totally different computers. This allows for say some to live in Australia, & someone from California hire them to work for them because they can work on the same project through IOS. ;-) IOS costs an initial $2000 for ten clients & $99 per additional client so for just a mail app it would never justify it. It is aimed more at a corporate environment. You also spoke of possible compiling the client as a download. This has been done by some few, and is possible through a product entitled 'Royalty'. The way it works is you pay REBOL Technologies a 10% royalty for any sales that you make. Now you might say that 10% of 0 is 0, but you must put $500 upfront on the Royalty amount. Royalty is a subscription based service, $500 dollars a year, but that same $500 is applied to the amount that you owe them through sales so basically it allows you to sell $5000 worth of REBOL software before you have to give them anymore money. Other than that, you can districute the mail client as view.exe & mailapp.r for free as long as you don't intend to use any of the REBOL/View/Pro features, & as long as you include the license agreement with your download. HTH! Ammon A short time ago, Boris Garbuzov, sent an email stating:
