Actually, I have not seen a single thing in any other language I
know that is not in REBOL. ;-)
However, I don't know any other language that has: dialecting;
based on a single concept (values); 100% reflexivity; code = data;
and so on...

I HAVE used other language, and they usually require me working
much more time to do the same thing. Once I had to fiddle for
three weeks to complete half of a project in Java; I could have
finished it in REBOL in a day or two.
