[REBOL] Re: About View

From: brett:codeconscious at: 29-Mar-2001 15:16

Hi RT Team
> The REBOL team held a three hour meeting yesterday to discuss REBOL/View
and its future. We came up with an excellent solution that provides a free version of View that is upgradable to a professional version that includes a few additional components, such as command shell, library access, and encryption.

I think it is an excellent idea. While Link/Pro will most likely satisfy my personal at-home needs - I think the above, as stated, would be great for those users who do not want any synchronisation with any server, but need a GUI, shell, etc. For example, I as a contractor might want to buy such a nice tool for work at a client site using it as a productivity tool not as a production item - an avoid issues with firewalls, security policies etc. Could be a nice little foot-in-the door application that quietly promotes Rebol and its corporate focussed sibling Link. In another context, though I would ask for such a package with a runtime generating option. This would be useful to those developers wanting to distribute rebol binaries to customers. Small productivity programs that if successful might encourage the client and the developer to "move up" to the next level computing/networking capability. Ultimately though, I hope your so wildly successful with Link and Serve that I can call up my personal/private desktop at home update it, call it up on a pocket computer on the bus and when at work access it again on the company desktop without my employer reading my updated CV! or for that matter my ASP/ISP (even though they may physically store/backup my data/programs). Of course then I need a work desktop too... The week after next for this one thanks... :-) Regards, Brett.
