[REBOL] Re: Has anyone tried Euphoria language?

Hmmm... From what I can see...
* High speed compileable interpeted language.
* Easy to learn, especially if you know BASIC or pascal.
* Has a series! like data type called a sequence.
* Linux, DOS, and Windows versions.
* Interfaces with OS and C functions well, including DLL's and SO's. Makes
* Variables are easy to use--no size restrictions.
* Most programs tend to be very OS dependent.
* No Native networking (internet) functionality.
* Windows must be drawn by OS--tons of code involved.
Overall I see niche uses for it. Seems to take alot of code to do anything

The contradiction so puzzling to the ordinary way
of thinking comes from the fact that we have to use
language to communicate our inner experience
which in its very nature transcends lingistics.
