[REBOL] Re: World Wide Rabbit - and what can be done to fix it?

From: rebolinth::nodep::dds::nl at: 20-Oct-2002 14:31

Hi Jason, * just a little addon: I think that revol/view is an example brought to us by Carl/RT to show what can be done with a dialect in Rebol. Build your own /view is the suggestion.. Its not an exident that the Rebol/Base just popped up out of the blue, I think the RT got just too many questions on enhancements on the /view and /core part. Well if you have a /base version, then people can build there own /Etc.. version.. This goes also for the /command and IOS version... those are for the highend market, I cant effort them and im seriously thinking of starting a community on the internet that builds a Free /command or /IOS version. Still when we look at the TimeLine of Programming languages from 1954 upto now, I think Rebol is (besides Tcl/tk and Pascal) the best Language that comes near the normal behavior of Human thinking and expectations, still new programming languages and dialects will follow, I sure do hope so! Anyway, the RT should loosen a Little and give the community the chance to improve Rebol and give Rebol-language a Chance to be IT! But this is not happening the way i hoped they would do it. I undertsand that its a Money and (C) issue from the side of the RT, but a language can only be a Language if it Gets its honor... I have a Lot of programmer around me and they all swear on C/C++, pitty it is, i cant get them to work with rebol, And im wondering why? Rebol is amost there...But they should explode within 1 year!! otherwise it will just become 1 out of 10 other languages...that would be a pitty. Greetings, Norman.
