On the other hand, REBOL is an underdog as so are most platforms. Therefore users of alternative platforms might be more inclined to try an alternative language. I'd hate to miss out on an AmigaOS 4.0 port (and I guess that if BeOS was/is continued in some form - be it OpenBeOS or not - it should have an REBOL port as well).

Don't hold your breath for a Palm port, at least not to the current PalmOS. I believe it had something to do with REBOL's footprint being too big. /Lennart Fridén ([lennart--nylen--biz]) The World is not sane so why should I be?
