But that's an OS argument, which is an either/or argument. Running Java apps doesn't stop you from running REBOL scripts at the same time, does it? REBOL doesn't have to be the dominant scripting language to be a success. Anyway, what I should be saying is that a skinning contest should be for skinning a current, popular, REBOL script, and not for something that's OS dependant. -- Carl Read
