[REBOL] Re: What can be found on web soothsaying

it definateately does not mean REBOL will disappear. Even if REBOL did go
bankrupt, somebody would buy the software assets. If REBOL went up sale today, I
would be raising money to buy it tomarrow. I am sure I am not alone either.
Purely worst case scenerio, Microsoft buys it and puts it in there secret
technologies bunker, never to be seen again. If that happened, within days there
would be a major project going on to write an open source REBOL. Heck, if that
was the case Carl would probably head the project. REBOL is his baby, he is not
going to give up on it that easy.
This really is just a shift from development staff (Bo and Kris) to marketing
oriented staff (Scot and Tom). The only reasonable conclusion we can draw from
this is that RT operates on a limited budget and they are preparing to generate
revenues from existing or soon to be released products. Sounds allot like good
news to me.
