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
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 ;-)
