Oh, I think I now know the sound of one hand clapping. The lead-in on the main page says, "REBOL/View is Free. Upgrade to Pro for Only $49." This link clicks through to a page where it says, REBOL/View - Free - Downloads in seconds. Only further down the page is there a pronouncement that it may not really be free. This method of lead-in is misleading. It is likely unintentional, but it is misleading, in my opinion. I guess Joanna was closer to being right this morning. Sorry, Joanna. --Scott Jones
