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
(220.127.116.11.2 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
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.

I have heard that rebol is very big in France. I hope that the US
will catch up. :-)
