Then world did a mistake. Amiga was 32 bit in 86, wasn't it? DOS could be
nice because of embedded sphera. I am still not comfort enough with unix
complexity, but on the other hand there are floppy versions of linux, qnx
rtp, and hopefully, amiga/tao will come too .... forget DOS - 16 bit. RT
could become with native rebol version, but well, then we are at it once
again, ... oh no, another os ... :-) For me - amiga/tao and qnx rtp and
maybe linux or java os are multiplatform ways to follow. .... rebol will
hopefully work upon all of them :-)

Hmm, then wait for Amiga/Tao and QNX Rtp versions, the OSes will operate on
so many CPUs :-)
