it already does.
2 years already on the Efika, you just need to just a way to got it on
the CherryPC image.
and thats were Rebol Inc REALLY falls down a lot,as its deemed to
simple a thing and yet takes some time to let ordinary users know it
exists, thats left to user advocacy and that doesn't seem to have worked
no ready made rebol view GUI for my VLC/Mplayer etc , no use to me
then type thinking.
ill just search for a ready made GUI that uses python,GTK,or any No of other
existing scripts found on goggle, that dont do it as good or as smal
or as self contained as rebol view, but they dont care as long as
it does most of what they want out the box..... ;(
there have been many opportunity's to get rebol on several key distro's in
the past, RTP(QNX6)to name but one, not to mention al the Nix etc all
for the sake of a few GUI tcp:ip/UDP front ends etc being produced for the likes of
VLC cross-platform video streamer/player and all the others, and
providing these self contained scripts and binary's as whole packages
to include were ever.... alas its not been deemed important enough to
make these simple fully working GUI's and let people know they exist
for inclusion for free use.....
the same will also happen with this mass PR offensive the CherryPC
(Efika clone by any other name) PowerPC based SOC, as no rebol coder wants to
make the time to create, test and inform the general public that these
new free GUI products (rebol scripts +view in an easy to click and
one time install exe)exist....
its going no were in the end users eyes if they even know or care it
exists, i will say again, nice simple plug-in GUI video steaming
scripts to all the popular CLI capable apps will do far more for R3
etc than any boffin coder talk, and no real working scripts to show
them, and let them use their apps, then perhaps base their new efforts on these
core scripts and share widely....
take a look at the VLC http remote control for something that NEEDS a
Rebol view and core drop in client/server making for it and replace the
dreadful mess thats there now....that will do more for core and view
in many peoples eyes....
