... guys, stop use false arguments, which just fit your opinion. Who cares about news?
The only truth here is, that EFIKA is much more known, it was reviewed, it runs plenty
of OSes, it has its community of users, it is known by power.org, it is recognised by
Freescale, etc. etc. If you run GENERAL google query, you will see quite different measures.
So how accurate is your above NEWS coverage? Do you know anyone with CherryPal actually?
I bet you don't. Simply put - sometimes you need a little bit of a luck. And as for CherryPal,
their luck is hype over internet. Once someone writes some article, others start to quote
> I know someone with an Efika. I asked him if it ran REBOL, but he didn't know.
It might run some arcane ppc version of REBOL, but I doubt it. I was asked by bbrv to
actually coordinaty REBOL porting effort for various Efika OSes, but you know how it
goes - in order to get R2 running there, RT would have to do the work themselves. With
R3, it will be quite different story ...

No, it is not REBOL Inc's job. The strategy is clear and it was blogged, so I wonder
guys, if you care to read blogs carefully? :-) R3 is completly different architecture,
and we wait for some things to be finished first, and once in certain state, ALL host
+ View source codes are going to be uploaded into DevBase. The only thing which is going
to be kept private is REBOL danamic library, which is cross-platform (so the only thing
RT needs to do in order to support another platforms is to recompile it). So - the porting
effort can be done by the community, and that it really a different story to R2 ....
As for webhosts - I can see no problem with CGI. And host I communicated with were even
willing to "install" REBOL for me. If they are not - find different host. But - who wants
to use REBOL as a php replacement anyway? I think it is not its target role, although
I use it that way too ...
