I don't think it is necessarily a killer app, but rewriting the java game clients used by Lycos/Playsite would be a excellent demonstration. At times there are over 2000 players on line, and the current java applet sucks big time - with frequent windows lock ups, crashes, disconnections etc. And I think it only works with IE on Windows. But whether Rebol or Rebol/express is up to the job - I'm not sure it scales up to that many users ... -- Graham Chiu
