or go directly to the software's homepage at and download a demo - if you're a Win2000 or XP user. (Not too cross-platform at the moment...) It looks most interesting, (though I'm one of the ones who can't test it), as I'm throughly sick of windows, menus and icons, which I think have passed their use-by date. It'd be nice to see REBOL skins appear that don't try and ape current GUIs but instead try to be a new and better one. -- Carl Read
