[REBOL] Re: rebol/view on a 486?

I have to admit that I am using /View on [AMDK5--90] Mhz (which is PentiumI-like procesor) at my home for developing and it is still VERY usable. Even simple 3D vector /View graphics is fast enough on it. The main problem is in memory usage. First I had only 16MB RAM which was relly Rebol Nightmare. Then I bought another 64MB and Rebol fly on it! Here is my summary of experience with Rebol on different CPUs. Maybe This could help people to decide what machine is suitable for their work. CPU + RAM PRODUCT COMMENT ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- - [MC68000--7Mhz] Rebol/Core Not bad usability. I was doing under that CPU few cgi-scripts for Chesster Web(incl. 30Kb chess-core.r!) 8MB Ram [MC68060--50Mhz] Rebol/View Edge of usability. (First versions of SWIS was developed on that CPU!) 32MB Ram [AMDK5--90Mhz] Rebol/View Works well for most GUI aplications but don't expect too much when using realtime effects,big bitmaps... 80MB Ram [PentiumIMMX--200Mhz] Rebol/View This is a cutting edge for using rebol /View IMO. Works great, usable for almost everything. 64MB Ram Everything over 200Mhz is FAAAST ;-) Regards, Cyphre
