They are undoubtly two products aimed at different markets and different solutions. GUIs are always a complex thing, and modern ones also tends to be bloated. See Linux for example. Lately it is becoming more and more similar to Windows for resource needs. Expecially if you try to use the new gui framework. You can use Pine for your email, but probably Opera is a better integrated tool for internet in general. See the program sizes. Time where managing a entire OS + GUI in 512K of code is gone. That miracle was also Carl's product, but now we see that GUIs have more and more importance and their weight in every application is very big. Still REBOL is not that "efficient" when speaking of memory usage.
