OK, so will try to keep it short: 1) When demoing things, if I win some users for Rebol/View alredy - it is because it differs from typical win apps! My users like it! 2) Eye-candy (demos) were always important. 3) YOU created one of the coolest technologies ever! Why to limit it? I have not worked in Flash, but Cyphre and Oldes do! Programming in View/VID is pleasure. If similar concept could be applied to other media stuff, Rebol would imo definitely win some developer's audience. Remember - what is natural for ppl? My answer is - ppl always looked for multimedia. I can assure you, that smoothness of old A500 7MHz machine still causes some wows with default PC Windows scrolling used ppl. Wasn't it cool times? -pekr-
