[REBOL] Re: Rugby RIP

From: brett:codeconscious at: 18-Jan-2002 8:52

Maarten, Sounds very sudden. I hope you reconsider. People want to do things now. IOS has been coming for a very long time. Trying to evaluate it is isn't easy either. Rugby makes a distributed program in minutes - it is too useful to ignore. It is fine that you believe that there "is only one". But really, if IOS can't prove itself to be as accessible, easy to deploy and as functional; then Rugby has it's niche. Don't be afraid to step on IOS's toes. IOS has to prove itself like Rugby has. Rugby is not a threat to IOS. Rugby can help IOS by teaching concepts. As Gregg pointed out on another thread earlier, Rugby helped him prototype a system. I suspect that Rugby based prototype helped him to decide to prototype in IOS. If IOS proves itself then Rugby will silently slip of the radar because IOS will have the weight of corporate/official support. There is no need to terminate Rugby prematurely. If you want to point people to IOS do so on your website and explain that Rugby is unsupported, but don't take down such a significant achievement. Brett.
