[REBOL] Re: Cross Platform? Then what about Mac OS X?

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 25-Sep-2002 22:28

Hi Laurence, I'm not from RT, so this is only my opinion. I think they would *love* to be able to ship a Mac OSX port of REBOL, but there are a zillion other things people want as well so they have to prioritize (heavily I imagine). I think if someone were to finance the development of the port, it might move up on their list of priorities, maybe even to the top. :) Part of the issue might be that OSX, as I understand it - not being a Mac developer historically, is nothing like earlier mac OSs, correct? It's based on a mach kernel and so is more like Unix than mac (pre OSX) in many ways. Maybe that helps since they already have so many Unix ports running, but the GUI side of things (Cocoa/Carbon is it?) is not just a snazzy X Windowing System and likely will require a lot of effort to create. Just my 2 cents. --Gregg
