Perhaps RT could rethink their strategy and provide an interface to the open source sql databases, but charge for access to commercial databases such as sqlserver, and Oracle. That way developers could cut their teeth on Rebol, it should increase the pool of experienced Rebol developers, and RT would still get their profits from the companies that can afford Oracle etc, and who were the only companies that were going to pay for it in the first place. Sun used to seed their servers into the universities, and MS their products into the academic institutions for the same reasons. -- Graham Chiu
