[REBOL] My two cents

From: fantam::mailandnews::com at: 14-Jun-2001 1:43

Hi Carl and RT folks, I just wanted to express my opinion concerning marketing concepts: On the rebol homepage, you can read a quote by Carl, saying: Compare running a spreadsheet on your local computer to running a similar application on a web site. Which would you prefer? When I saw this, I thought, well, of course I prefer running it on a local computer. My computer isn't always connected to the network. And even if it was, still I would rather run it locally. Then I saw you can click on the quote, and you get to the rebol faq. There you can read further: You like the performance of the local spreadsheet, but you liked the networked data that's in the web page. Do I? Why? With distributed computing you will get both. I guess I just don't get it, right?
