I am really glad, that all my scripts, doing real work at the border between private and commercial border are still running with older license versions of Rebol. And they run since around two years day and night. Therefore I do not have to stress my brain, if I crossed the border of the new license model.

It must not be free, but I remember the statements, that Rebol/Core is free and will always bee. I even remember the statement, that Rebol will be released Open Source one day, but not now.

I do not mind, paying a decent fee, but I want to know it before I start and I want a clear definition. Then I can compare it better with other alternatives. I was thinking about wrapping a few of my tools inside /View and giving to members of my group. But in the light of the discussion about the new license policy, I wil think about that again. AR
