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.
