It's usually one that people will buy the hardware to run, such as Sibelius on the Acorn computer, or Visicalc on the Apple. For Rebol, it would be the program that had tens of millions of people downloading Rebol for their computers. You just have to think of an application that would be irresistable for tens of millions of users. It would be in the area of communication/chat, world-wide politics, a peer-to-peer thing like Napster .... Regards -- Don Cox [doncox--enterprise--net]
