[REBOL] worse is better?

From: jehamby::anobject::com at: 14-Aug-2000 19:07

Here's a very intriguing article about programming languages called Worse Is Better that was originally published back in 1991 and compares the Lisp approach with the approach that brought us C and UNIX. Very interesting, IMHO, to see where REBOL might fit in to this theory. Any article that made such an accurate prediction of the future as this: The good news is that in 1995 we will have a good operating system and programming language; the bad news is that they will be Unix and C++. deserves to be (re-)read. :) Nearly 10 years later, how have we progressed.. or have we progressed? Enjoy! -Jake
