Respecfully I don think this is accurate. No flames please.

If a tool fails the requirements of a problem, no-one will pursue the tool further. Running on many platforms still means failure. REBOL is really good when your main challenge are to get code to work on numerous platforms and you obsessed with small codebase and footprint (disk not memory). But REBOL appears a tragedy if you need to integrate with OS features, hardware, or applications. This limits some important uses in Windows, Mac and other environments. All tools have strengths and weaknesses, so what's new? More than other languages, REBOL is a king of convenience, so I continue to invest my time. ~D
