[REBOL] Re: Why Wiev is still claimed to be free??? (was) Re: Yes, REBOL/Core is

I dont see it as a lie, but I do see it as misleading for commercial customers. I would be put off. I think it should be changed, or a least a footnote added. Consider that however you interpet it, it can be construed as a lie, or misleading to others. Bad for credibility. Bad first impression. --Ryan Holger Kruse wrote:
