I agree too. IMHO Rebol is too young for us to risk to use it on a huge development project based on big guns like Oracle's DBMS. It would be nicer if we could experiment its prowess on a cheaper or free dbms like MySQL. Moreover, I'm afraid it will be a long way before Rebol become a corporate tool.Corporations are slow to accept innovations ( not Microsoft, of course ;-). Nowadays I see Rebol as a marvelous tool for medium/small IT firms or for consultants and they (we) usually can't afford an Oracle license in their (our) tight budget projects. MySQL is another history. Just my two cents. -- Paolo Russo [pa--russo--perd--com] _________________ PERD s.r.l. Virtual Technologies for Real Solutions http://www.perd.com
