[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?
