[REBOL] OT: Paul Graham on hacker's radar

From: bry::itnisk::com at: 3-Oct-2003 10:43 Over time, hackers develop a nose for good (and bad) technology. I thought it might be interesting to try and write down what made Java seem suspect to me. I don't know if one develops a nose for such a blunt thing, I think one develops a nose for technology that will most likely appeal to one. Rebol really strikes me as something that would appeal to me, but I never seem to have the time to focus on it, because despite its appeal it has weird licensing, and poor xml support. I have to focus on languages I can use in product development, and I have to work with xml all the time. So when I look at Rebol aesthetically I think, hmm I could get really good with this thing, but when I look at Rebol from the perspective of what I need I think, well better start up the old VS.NET Other people on this list do find Rebol practical for their needs, as well as their aesthetics, can you specify what exactly in your needs Rebol answers?
