[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 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 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 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 for with win2000 included. as in 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.
