Welcome to Rebol -- Let me attempt your first three questions.

Basically yes. Any script written for /Core should work on /View. There are
minor incompatibilities (as there always is in evolving software) but not

In theory yes.
In practice several people have had trouble using /View as a CGI processor.
If you develop on Win98 /Core you should have no problems running that on a
Linux /Core -- and vice versa.

View/Pro includes sound. But you pay for that. It is the same distribtion as
the free /View but with a licence key to unlock extra goodies. Try:
in /View and you'll get the message:

Pay money. Get key. Lose the message.
Free sound is a regular request for /View. There have been some suggestions
on this list recently the Rebol Tech might be thinking about it.
