it. Maarten, Thank you ... but Yeow! Does this mean you are asking us not to post a copy of it on a web site ? If not then why take it down? Why not just append/include a message saying: <quote> The Rugby experiment is officially dead. [17Jan2002] You may use this archive (including republishing) as the BSD license indicates. Rebol/IOS now has a built-in distributed system. See for more detail </quote> Even as learning code, for experiments like GORIM etc, or for people who can't wait weeks for answers from RT about IOS

Is there going to be a free or very cheap IOS ? Anyone know what the price structure is/will be for IOS [..Yes I emailed Cindy] Does this mean IOS is going to become/replace the default REBOL/Core ? Hard to see how there is going to be "only one", when currently RT have a suite of annouced versions without very clear product relationships, contents, pricing or licensing structure. hmm.. I know RT need to make some money. Absolutely no argument there.. If IOS fails there is no case for such thing anyway. I don't get that statement at all. IOS could fail for a zillion reasons, including poor email response, miscalculated applications, marketing strategy, lack of clear web presentation regarding pricing, licensing etc, MS .NET media behemoth, bad luck, recession... The opposite could also all be true [hope so]. imo, The only way Rubgy would be a competitor or comfusing is if people make an awesome platfrom with apps around it, which are better cheaper faster than IOS and give it away or sell it for much less. Hard to see. Will IOS foster developemtn and esperimentation. I sure hope so. At the moment it very much gives me the impression it is aimed at being a quasishrink wrapped suite for commercial business.

Thanks again Maarten. My comments above are really not aimed at you.. I am just putting these concerns into the REBOL air in the hope I have misunderstood and will be proven wrong... ./Jason
