[REBOL] Re: VID, %, dialects WAS: percent! - new datatype request

From: riusa:email:it at: 17-Jun-2002 8:58

I agree with you. Sometimes Open Source projects have many problems for this reason, since everybody thinks its idea is better than another one... result? Lot of small projects, but no one is really powerful. Look at (example) to Linux Window Managers. There are a lot of GUIs, but many of them are almost equivalent... think if all these developers (very good analyst/programmers) do concentrate their power to only a GUI... look at KDE... look at GNOME... Creating many projects (less resources for every one) we will advantage the competitors (other languages, other GUIs... ). regards. --Alessandro--
