[REBOL] Does REBOL want to be a platform?
From: chris:langreiter at: 31-Aug-2002 16:20
Then somebody at RT better finds the time to read Mr Spolky's latest
article and especially this paragraph:
"Anybody who ever tried to sell software components (ActiveX
controls, beans, etc.) knows that you have to have a royalty-free
runtime or no developer will touch you with a 10 foot pole."
You might add "Except for the sporadic consulting gig", but otherwise
that's exactly how things are. Joel might add REBOL as case study
even, and that's just not what this great platform-to-be deserves.
* REBOL/Core/Pro and /View/Pro must be free for redistribution 
* ... and so must be a "developer version" of /Command and /IOS.
* Company direction must be clear (at the moment I think nobody
knows what RT is up to, which is the worst possible situation for
a platform vendor - as much as I like to be surprised ;-).
