[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
