For my case, I have been quietly observing the list and the various responses. Much of my time is spend trying to sell REBOL IOS to paying customers. Unfortunately, at this time, there is little progress. Part of it is attributed to the small REBOL developers base, pricing and also whether RT will be in for the long haul. The last point on RT is one that I ask myself very frequently. Primarily, I have seen little "marketing hype" on RT's web site. Little announcement on customer adoption, or positive partnership agreement, those that can help generate revenues. I also feel that stuffs like /Command should be free. Yes, it sure hurts potential revenue stream. But, in return one can gain a much larger developer base and that can help push adoption of IOS as well. Hope certain things will improve or swing to our favour :) YekSoon
