They are free only on personal, non profit use.. See Rebol/view "Price: Free for non-commercial use. Commercial licenses are $99 per CPU. " Rebol/core "Price: Free for non-commercial use. Commercial licenses are $79 per CPU." So as soon as you use one on workplace at company hours or give a script to client it's getting extremely likely it's costing a lot. I was hoping on using Rebol on two things.. (or three. but that pdf is done) 1) Platform independent tools for remote embedded systems configuring and 2) Embedded Webserver programming/scripting.. 1) It would be much better option as Java or anything similar (major users have either windows or linux) as Rebol is much simpler to install and cleaner on Disk (less files and junk-archives) 2) We need one.. (php and perl are too big) to give avay along with our free os. ) But that pricing scheme is too high for me to sell my boss and clients.. Sorry. ;-( Joanna
