[REBOL] Re: What does REBOL fix?

All User-Serviceable Parts Inside (as opposed to the common sticker on many electronic appliances that says "No user-serviceable parts inside") When I first HEARD about REBOL and who was writing it, I wanted to try it because of its alleged simplicity. When I tried to USE it I found out that I couldn't understand it. Then after some head-beating I found it to be at least more "accessible" than C or PERL or shell scripts. The concept of "free" software is that if I get a program I am free to look under the hood to see how it works, and to modify it if I want to. In actual practice, if I get the source code for a program and find thousands of lines of un-commented C code, there is no way I am going to TOUCH that. If it were REBOL, I might. If I had enough good business ideas, that would be the name of my company, USPI Inc. (User Serviceable Parts Inside).
