[REBOL] REBOL/View for commercial products

From: g::santilli::tiscalinet::it at: 4-Dec-2000 13:27

I hope some guy at RT can give us an answer on this... I know this is something that has been already discussed, so forgive me if it is annoying for you. I have been contacted to develop a couple of programs that could be easily (and quickly!) done using REBOL/View (I'll need some hack to print etc., but that is a secondary issue); I'd really hate to do them in C++ or even worse Java. The problem is: I cannot give to a costumer a program that will expire. This problem has been stated already by a lot of people here, and I think it really needs a solution! I know that RT is busy now and can't give a date for /View 1.0. But I'd be happy to be able to use the current version, even if it contains bugs. It's easier to work around a bug in REBOL than to code in other languages. So my question is: would it be possible to *BUY* (at a reasonable price) a version of REBOL/View (without support etc.) that does not expire? I think my costumer would *REALLY* be interested in REBOL/View because it could cut their costs substantially, so they are very likely to invest money and time in this technology; but they are also in need to develop some applications ASAP... PLEASE, I'd need an answer ASAP. If it is no, it is another oppurtunity lost for REBOL to enter the market... :-( Thanks in advance, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[giesse--writeme--com]> - Amigan - REBOL programmer Amiga Group Italia sez.
