This licensing model seems to be quite better than the current one! What about View/Pro features? Would be great to free(only at the same conditions you've written above) some (or even all?) of least sound and library access interface. I think this will help to spread Rebol into wide area of applications and better compete with other free scripting languages.What is your opinion on that? regards, Cyphre
