[REBOL] Why is mention of Win2000 excluded in download page for /core?
From: tim::johnsons-web::com at: 7-Mar-2002 15:07
I have been told by RT officials that rebol/core 126.96.36.199.1 is stable for use
with Windows 2000. (If memory serves me correctly)
I have also read emails in the list to the effect that rebol/core 188.8.131.52.1
works fine on Windows 2000.
If that is the case then why is there not some content at the rebol website
that confirms that /core 184.108.40.206.1 is Win 2000 - ready?
There is a specific reason for my concern:
I've contacted several ISPs that are using Win2000 web servers about
running rebol scripts on their servers. They refuse to do so unless
they see some documentation to the effect that /core is portable to win2000.
At least one has told me that all she needs to see is win2000 in the cell
at http://www.rebol.com/platforms.html for 220.127.116.11.1 with win2000 included.
Windows 95/98/NT/2000 instead of just Windows 95/98/NT.
Have there been problems with win2000 that I don't know about?
Is this why the exclusion?
Just curious, that simple change in content might lead to some
more "reb-friendly" ISPs. At least it would where I live and
there are many win2000 webservers.
Is there documentation regarding this anywhere else in the rebol
site? That might help.
