Because they are lazy dogs? :-) Well, I think that it is because REBOL is not part of default distros. It once was with RedHat 6.2, IIRC. But I am not sure, distro licenses do allow to include proprietary SW? So, general web-hosts installs Linux, and you have LAMP available (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP). As a bonus, you might have PostgreSQL, sqlite, Python plus framework, Perl. So, imo, ALL it takes is to choose good web-hosters, and ask them to upload REBOL executable for you! One email or one phone, that is it. I did so with two web-hosts, they did it for me in the past. Now I host my server myself :-)

Maybe not, but it is a good example of what can be achieved with REBOL, and new GFX engine of R3 will allow even more ...

Can you help? Do you have some concrete opinion here? I e.g. understand what Ed suggests here. Guys, it is in our hands, RT listens. I got Carl to agree to create website&marketing group on AltME R3 Alpha world. Would anyone be willing to join? -pekr-
