In my experience, advocating anything means absolutely nothing to anyone. I haven't read any of your posts, so I don't mean to imply anything about them (in particular). But most "hey, someone should take up the challenge and do X!" posts are nothing more than "hey, I would like this, but don't want to do the work, so could someone else do it for me?" posts. Would I like to see REBOL/View used more? Yes. Do I think it's ready for prime-time? No (something as simple as resizing is an absolute bitch). But, if you'd like to "advocate" to the rest of the world to use it, you need to prove to them that it is a viable alternative to what they already know works - not ask others to do so for you. Just my 2 cents. Jeff M. --
