Alessandro - you have to be new here, no? :-) Look, rebol base is just one - so - even your View contains sound, shell and library components. They are locked by license key. I am trying for at least two years to lobby for all of them being unlocked. No success yet, though. Hopefully at least sound will come in next release or so I hope, but I doubt RT will change their mind in regards to Shell and/or Library ones ... -pekr-
