I arranged to make a presentation a few weeks ago to the local Linux users' group. That group meets after hours in the local headquarters of a national-scale company, with employees of that company bringing their own boxen into the auditorium and setting up network, video projection, etc. before each mtg. I had previously done a presentation on REBOL (well received BTW) using a box running RedHat 6.whatever. THIS time, the box set up for the mtg was running Debian. Both the public beta of /View and the current rlse of /Core blew up instead of running. I tap-danced furiously, and did a few minutes on XML. I didn't report it at the time because the box was actually running Debian Unstable, and assumed that maybe the guy who set it up was just a little too close to the edge. Also, it wasn't my box (and I was on the stage...) so I couldn't spend too much time poking around. Since then, I've seen traffic on this list indicating that others have had problems with REBOL on Debian, so perhaps my experience wasn't so unique or box-owner-dependent after all??? -jn-
