[REBOL] facts we will have to face ...

reactions to OSNews.com interview really seem as a little bit of
advertisement of rebol fan ;-) But I think we will have to face following
voices in future:
Since apparently everyone here but me is a REBOL worshiper, I've got some
(I would look for the answers on my own, but I have to leave in a about 2
minutes, so I figured this would give all of you something to do :-)
Can REBOL do audio? Does it support MP3 native? How about more obsure audio
formats? If not, is it fast enough to decode it if you wrote the decoder in
What about movies? Can it play sorenson quicktimes? Does it have support for
AVI? Once again, you should be able to add in movie support or codec support
by writing it in REBOL itself assuming it truely is a complete platform like
they say it is.
I thought I had some more questions, but I can't think of them now. Gotta
I mean - if Rebol should be regarded being platform, it would have to enable
us to implement "whatever" in the language itself, not being dependant upon
language kernels directly - I mean - sound, video, math, etc., the area
where rebol speed will be badly noticed.
I think that maybe RT should prepare some FAQ answers regarding this issue,
because if Rebol will become popular, newcomers will ask about possibility
to compile and speed things up ....
