I see your point and I probably unerstand the lack of resources from RT,
but I actually helped to help them for free under an NDA or something like
that. I love Rebol and the only reason I do not use it that much is that I
use BeOS ate home and at work so I end up having to boot to Windows to do
Rebol stuff and I really do not like that.
Well... I guess I will have to wiat and see.
