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).
