[REBOL] Re: License Question

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. ./Jason
