[REBOL] Re: Commercializing Rebol

From: kenneth:nwinet at: 16-May-2001 7:32

Just to add my two cents. When I'm working on something, I want all the pieces exposed and layed out in front of me. When I give it to my customer, I want it in one package. I will worry about size and how to update. While in principle, incremental updates are a neat idea, in practice it just leads to job security in the support department. I personally know one guy that supports hundreds of his customers easily all by himself; whereas, less than 50:1 is common supporting the package I work with these days. Much of this support cost is due to components being overwritten on the customers systems (often o/s components which I think we should all charge back to Mickysoft.) Ken.
