[REBOL] Re: Language shoot-out

Hi Jason and Rebols,
once upon a time (long ago) there was a thread named "Encouraging functional
programming". Is there somebody who has got that archived? (I confess that I
lost that when I had to reinstall Windows here).
A year ago I was evangelizing Python to a respected programmer friend. His
answer shocked me: "That's all very well, but why don't you switch to a
functional languauge like ML?". He tried to explain about functional
languages.. I didn't really get it but did a littel investigating. Now REBOL
has me hooked and I am honestly not sure quite why :-)
Please would you try to explain to me [multimedia designer geek] what
means in the context of REBOL?
