I think that problem was also the porting effort. That should now not be a problem anymore, as rebol.dll (and yes, Tim, also rebol.so) are keeping only platform independent code, so in theory all is needed is set-up of compiler and you are done. At least much easier than with R2 model. The rest in R3 is open-sourced. As for memory usage, View starts on 6MBs with R2, 2MBs with R3. But - remember that Sun also discontinued JavaME, and they are suggesting to use full Java, as even mobile devices are getting faster. Still having memory efficient tool is an advantage though ....
