[REBOL] Re: outro

From: kemp::extelligence::net at: 13-Dec-2002 14:44

Yep yep =) There's another point - RT is greatly complicating things by offering ever more 'combinations' of features - this is bound to cause BIG problems in the future. Much better for both them and us to offer one comprehensive package that can run ANY Rebol code. Is it a language? A set of libraries? A GUI toolset? An O/S abstraction layer? A shell? I dunno. The idea of picking your own functionality may seem appealing on a very cursory basis, but it just doesn't scale up to anything serious. I don't want to be constantly telling my clients "no, no, you've got the wrong Rebol. I know it's current, and it works for your other rebol app, but it won't work for ours'. Java versioning is bad enough... Ah, the beauty of a true compiler. K.
