[REBOL] Re: just fyi ...

As a "platform vendor", our problems are their problems as well ;-) Indeed I hope RT makes a lot of money selling those great technologies, but the specific case of runtime fees is troublesome. There _must_ be several reasons to abandon it, otherwise practically all publishers of software development tools wouldn't have done so. - high burden of administration on developer side and tool company side - sales figures hard to validate for the tool company - success is "penalized" I'd definitely rather pay $1500 for a REBOL Developer's Edition and then be done with it. I also think, given the enormous amount of competitive packages out there (be it commercial or free), a DE should be somewhat more attractive than the current /Encap package is, i.e. a useable /View Interface Builder would be a necessity. Just a few thoughts. -- Chris
