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.
