[REBOL] Wildman project - PS3?

From: greg::schofield::iinet::net::au at: 6-Aug-2007 22:02

I am new to the list, and very new to REBOL (waiting for version 3.0 to begin working with it). The Wildman project caught my eye sometime ago, and while I know it is underwraps, I would make a suggestion. The PS3 console is unusual, it has a Sony's Game OS, and a vacancy - that is OtherOS. In short, because of this it is a general piece of HW unlike any other. I believe current OSes are over the top, far too much doing far too little, for no real benefit. I also believe very strongly in task specific applications and hence the critical importance of a scripting interface to bring various plugins into useful combinations. I am also in favour, which seems attuned to many of the directions REBOL is taking, in generalisied compiled code engines (plugins) bound by scripts into multitudes of different applets and mega applications, modifable and adaptable rather than being cast permenantly into bloated every-function applications found in present off-the-shelf products. Two things cross my mind, one is making REBOL an OS for otherOS on a powerful fixed architecture Cell console. The second is bringing in a "virtual" OS ontop of Sony Game OS loaded as a "game", a game that allows for productivity applications to be run in otherwords. The Cell processor seems ideally suited to a small script interpreter like REBOL. Greg Schofield Perth Australia
