On my system (Linux Mandrake 7 + Pentium II/300 + 192 Mb mem + 30 Gb hard
disk), the Squeak basic environment takes about 5 seconds to start, and
REBOL/View takes 2 seconds. Anyway, there is no problem, because I don't use

I agree again.

I use REBOL/View because it is ok for me.

I agree again and again.
Anymay, I'm dreaming of a complete programming environment for REBOL,
compatible with lightweight network programming. It could be so cool ;-)
I'm dreaming... I'm dreaming...
