It is not just possible, but is probable, that a 'tipping point' will be reached that will cause a sharp spike in increased linux use. If there is not an 'open source' rebol, rebol will lose out. It seems to me that one could have an 'open source' rebol with the 'pay per use' modules available without the source. Note: this is my opinion, and I don't wish to be involved in or initiate an 'OS war'.

If rebol were 1)Open source 2)A component of some usable linux feature, it may enhance usage. Again: MHO tim
