Use whatever tools you enjoy using. Coding should be an enjoyable
experience not a chore!
Me, I just prefer the declarative approach to GUI construction. Oh, and the
small fact that I am 2-6 times more productive with it than my previous
languages of choice, Delphi (for Windows GUI stuff) and PERL (for UNIX-
based work). The fact that REBOL-based backup, accounts, database, freight
systems are an integral part of my business is testament to its ability to
do the job
and do it quickly.
I try to remember that:
1) Time and cost are paramount. The customer wants the cheapest product
that will do the job, and they want it now.
2) Language / Cross-platform are developer issues. The customer wants a
product that runs on their platform, if it meets 1) above they don't care
what tools you used to create it!
3) Happy coders are good coders.
