[ALLY] Re: [REBOL] About View

From: carl:rebol at: 28-Mar-2001 22:44

Hi Phil: With regard to the website, it's not there because we just recently made the decision. The site will be updated soon to reflect the new product. The primary reason for not releasing Link/World or Link/Pro has to do with server loading. REBOL/Serve was designed to handle hundreds of users, not hundreds of thousands of users. It was created to be used by small to medium sized organizations and companies. In addition, we do not have the staff to deal with the volume of administrative issues that would come up (e.g. "I forgot my password," etc.) Note that Link/World and Link/Pro would only connect to REBOL Technologies' servers. To use Link for your own organization, you would need to buy Express. View can provide many of the same benefits of developer support by using a network of Reb sites. This also makes it easier for developers to add their own content and scripts to the network. The View desktop will be available in the View 1.1 product release. View 1.0 simply includes the View and VID functions. View/Pro 1.0 adds to it the shell, library, and encryption modules. It does not include database access modules, which will continue to be provided only in REBOL/Command. -Carl
