Not keeping up ubuntu distros would be a *serious* omission..

OK then, should I send RT a bill because I got this to work? Just kidding - well, sort of kidding. I would not pay for such a build because ubuntu is so widely used. I'd quit using rebol first. It isn't the only game in town. Maybe rebol should go full open source, like mysql. I'm mentioning mysql because it is an open source model that seems to make money for its developers.
