Great. I would like to ask RT to add also PostGress SQL native database support for Linux version to have it "complete". PostGress, as of 7.1 version is regarded being "free Oracle" or so I heard. It is free, yet powerfull and properly supports transactions. If you will hear to Apache + PHP ppl, many of them talk just two SQL databases - mySQL and PostGressSQL. Anyone here to second my observations?

I will discuss it with my ppl ... btw: what's the state of Netware implementation? Had you any requests for Netware Rebol implementation? I think there is still huge installed base of Novell Netware fileservers ... just curious, nothing more ...

Hmm, something else came to my mind. We all saw how usefull VID is e.g. to create diagrams. Now, without VID being incorporated into Command, we have only image datatype, face support, but there is no easy way of how to create those diagrams ... I think that sooner or later RT should think about at least incorporating some font types into Command and allow us to use also VID ..... -pekr-
