[REBOL] Open source project Re:(9)

From: rishi:picostar at: 11-Oct-2000 0:37

Hi Carl. This all sounds really sweet (... multitasking, modules, view, graphics, audio, streaming media, dynamic components, and developer tools ... are you serious?!) ...but... I would simply like to know what REBOL plans to give away for free and if there is any pricing plan for individual users rather than companys. Here are some questions I have: 1. will rebol/view be free for community to use or should we expect costs approx. in same league as rebol/command? 2. Is there any pricing model in works for individual users programming for non-profit? As a student, I suppose I could dish out $50 or so bucks for quality software (for non-profit use without encription)...Are there any additional products (other than core) that I can expect to purchase(at my price budget) or download for free in the future? I love rebol and am excited about all the cool stuff that is being worked on. I also understand that REBOL Tech. needs to make money in order to provide me with all this stuff (and I do hope you make lots of money!)... But in the end, it is just not practical for me to invest time/effort ( I probably will anyway since it is so cool and I am so impractical ... a rebel..) in, say, REBOL/View if it will cost $500 or so. Guess I just want to have quality fun for a cheap price... Will that be possible? What does the REBOL future look like for individual, non-profit users? just wondering...
