This sounds a little vague though :-(
Forgive my prodding, do you have some concrete date? I have dumped a few of
my servlets for Rebol CGI scripts since they are faster to develop and
debug. I am developing a web application that IŽll like to deploy with
REBOL and if the "Tiny Web server" script suits my needs IŽll have a talk
with the coders of the script and mybe deploy that too as a complete
package. IŽm very sure many other programmers would think in this
direction. It would be a boost for REBOL if companys can prove that REBOL
alone can get the job done in contrary to the web applications that have a
nice mix of the hefty java JDK, JSDK for servlets, Perl or VB for ASP (
believe me, I seen enough hard to manage, unfathomable Web applications
with this sort of mix )
It all comes down to: When? Žcause IŽll like to base one product on REBOL,
and if things work well, ALL
Flexible licensing model? weŽll all need it someday
what else? get Core to support at least 1 free DB, or
create one yourselves! IŽll personally buy a copy for
myself and the company!!!
REBOL is going to be a big thing, with a flexible licensing model, Database
and native OS command execution, many people would defect. IŽve "REBOLed"
