I think that Holger is the person responsible/dedicated to Amiga ports. I am
not sure how /Core is done for Elate, but I wonder how "fast" is that going
to be. I don't expect RT coding it in native VP code.
Rebol for AmigaDE is the same as Rebol for Java - it would bring us to some
platforms we currently don't run under. On the other hand, - if AmigaDE is
not native to the platform (and as far as Zaurus is concerned, - it is not),
it is simply hosted and it means that that Rebol is direct competitor to
RT however has a little different business model, although I know very
little about it :-) RT needs money and money come from corporate sphere.
View engine lacks few capabilities, as some native engine to text formatting
(e.g. separate specification via dialect, not mixed with text itself), and
probably proper font engine. IIRC QNX and Intent use Bitstream, - probably
the best one on the market ...
But ... I think that we will get there one day. It just needs time, or so I
believe it :-) As I expressed to Carl - REBOL OS would be probably the
nicest OS ever created - VID coding is very soul pleasant :-). Dialects are
cool - still ONE language, while concentrating on domain specific
