Rebol/Core and Rebol/View are free for non-commercial use: Yes
Free, but I am not sure about what redistribution mechanism.
*BUT, you need to purchase REBOL/Command if you want Rebol access to any
system shell scripts or executables!
In my eye this cripples rebol totally for free distros.
Useless for sysadmin.
By all means include /Core /View and use it. They are cool, more people need
to learn about them.
I recommend Python instead. No problems with licenses, distros. RedHat uses
Python for their manual installations scripts. It's a great language too,
with very rich contributed libraries and strong smart community.
In any event, I suggest you write directly to Rebol Technologies and ask
them, since they may be considering some new licensing/distro ideas.
