[REBOL] Re: It's NOT Free.. (was) Re: Re: The future of Rebol - achieving critic

From: carl:rebol at: 21-May-2001 15:43

Easiest thing to do is to provide examples: Let's say you work for Ford Motor Company. You come across REBOL and discover its obvious benefits. You replace your $250,000 help desk or manufacturing test suite with a few REBOL scripts. We want you, Ford, to feel obligated to pay something. Don't worry, the Ford management is quite happy paying for such things. They know good things are not free. If you are Joe User and you want to use REBOL to enable others to collaborate with you on building a shared collection of interactive astronomy charts, there is no charge. You know that good things are free. Quite simply, we want the world to enjoy the benefits of REBOL. But, if you're a business, and the benefit is cash or efficiency, then you need to license the software that made it possible. And, we are very open to negotiate on special situations. We recognize that there are many edge cases. Just contact us. -Carl Sassenrath REBOL Technologies At 5/21/01 09:56 PM +0200, you wrote:
