[REBOL] Re: RSL: Rebol Standard Library

From: ptretter:charter at: 23-May-2001 21:41

I agree with the direction RT is headed in. In fact, alot of the things I said would happen have /View is free now. And guess what I immediately bought /Pro. I am a happy person for the purchase. Additionally, I even chatted with Carl in Realtime. How many people get the opportunity to do that with their language founders (Thanks Carl). I agree with the language not being open source. I work for EDS and support large enterprise networks. I can tell you that open source is not a mechanism that top corporate execs care to indulge. It implies lack of support and organization. Thats why companies like Microsoft continue to flourish with their products. So for better or worse at least at this time it appears that RT is listening to what we want - at least any long time member of this list understands that by now. And I feel compassionate about the direction they will take given that very fact. So go REBOL go! Paul Tretter
