[REBOL] Re: Rebol & Linux

Hi Phil,

I suggest you invest in another machine - second hand perhaps. This strategy takes all the risk out, saves time waiting for re-boots, adds functionality and has a gentle commitment curve. Basically it avoids grey hair. ;-) There is I believe some gotchas too regarding co-existing operating systems. Assignment of interupts and things. Windows likes to play around - or let you play around with them. I don't know how Linux is with them now, but when I last looked it had problems. Or perhaps it was just me... The point is the hard disk is not the only potential point of interface between the two (or more) operating systems - device configuration could be an issue too. Having another machine allows you to become try out your latest Rebol network innovations in a more realistic setting too. :) Regards, Brett.
