What? I would call it personal use, if your brother doesn't use the app to make some money (or in other commercial purpose). This "charge for everything" even before technology is proven enough really starts to be strange ... After setting nice direction RT seems to be eating our loyalty away, and while corporate sphere doesn't really care to spend some money (although not always true), RT is isolating View usage to strict personal use. Just half a year ago message sent to community sounded much more comfortable to me: Ukiah, CA - REBOL Technologies announced the availability of REBOL/Core for redistribution. Software developers can now freely distribute their REBOL/Core applications with REBOL/Core. Subject to certain licensing requirements, developers can now develop convenient packages combining their REBOL/Core applications with a copy of the REBOL/Core binary and distribute these to their user base. Now I am not sure I can easily suggest novices to start with Rebol, if they can't even pass View on a floppy together with their scripts to friends ... PS: there is no need to start licencing policy thread once again, but anyway - confusion, confusion ;-) -pekr-
