Yes I agree we have best Inet langauge and *that's* why I want to know how to
make a killer Unity in Rebol/rugby!
/View is not Flash. Flash does somethings very very well. Flash has huge and
growing market. new FlashMX does even more [video streaming faster XML]
Java is a pain to install and program
We even have native make-swf.r
Rebol/Unity [rugby-based] for Flash would really put REBOL on the world map.What
a great opportunity. What a chance to take a lot of people by surprise. Here

Imagine how easy to install these socket servers on any machine.
How much easier to extend modify link etc.

Though non-commercail artist + academic is free. How much different from Rebol
Colim Moock has given a lot of good work to the Flash community. I don't think
anyone begrudges him some payback.
But seriously perhaps this is a great chance for rebolers to show the
competition, and make some money to support rugby developmnent etc.if they want
Maarten are you listening ??

When I conencted they had 300 connections on.
Within about 1 hour that had risen to 480. Somethime after that the disconnect
message caem up so I guess they went back to work.
What can Rugby handle?
How far has anyone pushed this?

show me please
Let's do a demo
