[REBOL] Re: Why is mention of Win2000 excluded in download page for /core?

included. I don't have win2k here so I cannot confirm, but I assume YES. #1 on rebol home page it says: IOS runs identically on: Windows (95, 98, NT, 2000, ME, XP), Linux, Solaris, BSD, AIX, HP/UX, and many more. #2 Windows 95/98/NT iX86 #3 As I understand it, Win2000 is just renamed NT5, but it took M$ 3 years or something to make the upgrade from NT4SP3++. Whenever I see something runs on 95/98/NT it is pretty safe it will run across the board. What about XP ?? Is XP = Win2002 ? I thought so, maybe someone can clarify. For any given REBOL/Core what are the system dependencies? I thought REBOL had minimal dependenci handling network prorocls nativley itself. But there must be some.. Anyone answer this? Alas, there are _lots_ of things which should be on the site which are not..{sigh} The site is poorly maintained and a lousy demo of what rebol can do. Great shame, but RT's resources are slim and applied to other tasks. The other reason it is not mentioned explicitly on is probably because it is taken for granted that it works and that anyone can test so easily. Rebol is so easy to install, no registry mess, tiny, multiple personal installations are quite easy to do. But I wonder if your ISP is not much more worried about crashing her win2000 than crashing your rebol? Why does'nt she just try it out? If you have FTP with some login shell access why don't you? Just upload and run. let us know how it works out ./Jason
