Technically you could. :) Just install a Linux or OpenBSD on the iBook and run Rebol/View for Linux/PPC. Obviously it is not the optimal solution for some (most?) of us.

Different tool fits different purposes. Cocoa is most often used with Objective-C, although Java, Python and some others can be used. That means compiling and linking. Some things just are more suited for scripting languages. Especially when not equipped with a G5 and XCode, which speeds up compiling and linking and provides some change-code-while-program-is-running capability. For some things Cocoa is great, for other things other are better. -- Jussi Hagman CS in Åbo Akademi University Studentbyn 4 D 33 [juhagman--abo--fi] 20540 Åbo [jhagman--infa--abo--fi] Finland
