[REBOL] Re: Dialect for Flash files

Yep, we all know about Squeak... It's been around
for a while now. The guys who wrote it are old
friends of mine from Apple computer. It's based
on Smalltalk-80... and remains true to that design,
thanks to a good team... now at Disney.
However, Squeak has different objectives that REBOL.
Squeak is meant to be an entire programming environment
whereas REBOL is meant to create lightweight network
applications. On my system here, Squeak takes about
30 seconds to start (REBOL/View takes about 2 seconds),
and it's meant to be kept open the entire time.
So, each language has its merits. Use the language
that makes the most sense for what you want to do. There
really are no "winners". Most languages continue to exist.
Fortran and Cobol are still used today.
