[REBOL] Open source project Re:(7)

From: mccarter:uniserve at: 11-Oct-2000 13:16

I think the main worry here is how much info is shared to the community. Carl has been around the block for a while and I am sure that he has been weighed laid and parlayed, and intimately knows how IT gets stolen so easily in this business. Rebol is a work in progress and we are the lucky beta testers ( and I'm damn glad to be able to use it ). There is 20 years plus of planning that Carl has put into this. The balancing act is very tough as the cost of hiring the highly skilled help to finish such a monumental task and fending off the worries of the Venture Capital, and satisfying the developer community are all pulling in different directions. ( not to mention the high cost of york peppermint patties). I personally would like a support network at least as good as the Novell knowledge base, big bucks to do that, and I am sure that in the future it will happen. I just hope that Rebol makes a large enough splash in the language market to gain and maintain a large market share, the worry is if there appears a r++ or maybe r#, or r## maybe from some big competitor who has infinitely deep pockets... tightrope ..... I believe the caution that we are seeing and the very close playing of the cards are necessary, annoying, but necessary Bill [news--ted--husted--com] wrote:
