It is mentioned now, though it didn't used to be: "Before proceeding with the free download, we would appreciate you answering the questions below, but they are not required." This is good, as many people are turned off by being forced to answer questions about themselves when all they're wanting to do is to see if they'll like a product. I can't remember if you can install View without being online, but if not, that could also make some people nervous. If it can't be helped, explaining why they need to be online will go some way to reassuring them. Incidentally, one complaint I've had about the REBOL way of doing things is that "You won't be able to buy programs, you'll have to use them online." Now, I know this isn't the case with general REBOL scripts and don't expect it to be so in the future, but how do you convince someone that REBOL's not the thin edge of the wedge to a world where all software is rented? -- Carl Read [carl--cybercraft--co--nz]
