May I comment as an Amiga user and long time Rebol lurker ?
I have View installed on my main Amiga, and it works fine but is really
too slow on the 68060 processor - especially scrolling. However, I have just
received the new Amithlon CD, which effectively turns a standard PC into
an Amiga. You now have the possibility of an Amiga running at effective
speeds of 700MHz and above.
It looks as though this product will sell rather well to many former
Amiga users. It will also be ideal for compiling Amiga software.
So I hope that Rebol will continue to support the Amiga platform,
and allow us all to join in this big step forward with Morpheus.
(One problem on Amiga is the difficulty of buying a good TCP stack.)
