Hi Patrick: My main workstation is Linux Red Hat 7.2 running Windows 98 at the same time on another "virtual desktop" using Win4Lin 3.0 (with the same file system "underneath"). I use rebol primarily for CGI, and I test with Apache. I alternately test when necessary from other Windows machines on my network using Microsoft Personal Web Server. Win4Lin 3.0 has a 'vnet' option that allows me to configure a "virtual machine" on the same machine. I have not yet used that option. I have found that my current version of rebol/core ( on Linux, and the corresponding windows versions on the other machines have some differences in the way that CGI/path-info) is interpreted. I've coded to resolve those differences I am a partner in a small company. My other partner is primarily a perl programmer. He indicates that he finds differences in stability between Windows and Linux ports to perl. I do not find such differences in stability in my configuration, between different ports of rebol, that is to say: I find rebol equally stable accross both platforms. (disclaimer, I'm simply being anecdotal here, I have no formal benchmarks)

P.S. I have heard that rebol is very big in France. I hope that the US will catch up. :-) -- Tim Johnson <[tim--johnsons-web--com]>
