Rebol is my scripting language of choice. When it comes to making a living programming, the best case scenario for me is when my client doesn't care about the source, they just want results. I set up the first semester of a high-school curiculum on programming using rebol. Rebol was a perfect first choice, based on the requirements. The second semester required tutelage in graphic user interfaces. The target platforms are Windows, Macintosh and Linux. I couldn't use rebol/view because I see no rebol/view available for Macintosh. Python offers the TKInter tc interface which is portable to Macintosh. Thus I used Python. Ah for a perfect world....... Now I am asked to bid on a contract with source required in Cobol and Visual Basic. Compromises, always compromises. Frankly, I don't see a world in which one programming language will do it all. tj
