Those were examples of demographic criteria, 'tis all.

However, assuming all platforms can't be supported on day one, IE is the logical place to start. Also, I'm not sure it's clear to me that Windows users don't try different things. Close-mindedness, of course, is not platform specific; non Win/Mac users can be equally stubborn (although often in different ways).

before a browser plugin. I agree completely. The lack of OSX is a gap so large you could drive an SUV through it!

in which case I'll chear. Please let it be so! Lack of REBOL/View on OSX has held me up from switching over to the Mac as my primary platform.

browser before they can use your site, then from their POV REBOL's a step backwards. Agreed. Although many would argue that requiring a browser plug-in at all is a step backwards... Regards, Ed
