Gregg hmm... wow yes Thanks for pointing this out :-) This could really change the picture On it says: 1. "View/Pro extends View with encryption (RSA, DH, DSA, AES, Rijndael, and Blowfish), shell access (for executing other programs and shell commands), and dynamic library access (direct from REBOL)." 2. "REBOL/View/Pro => Price: US$49.00 for non-commercial use." 3. "Freely redistributable. Use it on as many machines as you like. Post it to your web site, send it as email, distribute it on CD-ROM, or give it to friends on floppy disk." Do you undertand that to mean: "one-time View/Pro purchase per user per Operating System, who is then free to re-distribute [as in free Linux ] FOR NON-COMMERCIAL USE"? I do :-) $50 per Operating System seems great value, if it helps RT and broadly propagates REBOL. QA: Do you know any problems running View/Pro on a remote Linux server when Xll is not running? {/etc/inittab has id:3:initdefault:} QB: Will /View image features run when Xll is not? Use: people upload files to Apache/Rugby server /View creates thumbnails, conversions etc.. I've just been exploring ImageMagick. Now with /Pro shell+library access I can use that too :-) Obviously I won't enjoy most View features, but encryption, shells, libraries and server-side image processing would be very useful. ./Jason
