Hi Cyphre :)

Very slow :( (better rate is 0.1s...)
'coz Rebol View is still the Amiga 188.8.131.52.1 for 68k (so under "emulation" for PowerPC
(G3). Not really an emulation due to the compatibility of the system, and a very good
JIT included in MorphOS ;)

I have a Pegasos PPC [G3--600MHz] + 256 Mo SDRam + Radeon 7500 AGP + HD 40Go IDE + DVD +
That the Pegasos1, no more manufactured, only for Betatesters (600 units solds arround
the world). But soon (for the end of 2003) will come the Pegasos2 with G3 AND G4 + DDR
+ ... (for the large public :) (project: G5 for Pegasos ;)
Now, MorphOS is v1.4, more stable, with more and more options & tools, and a SuperBundle
of Software (for the moment totally free for all the Pegasos users :). And the compatibility
with the classic Amiga applications are also more and more better (for example : no problem
with the system applications). (nota: after OpenFirmware, MorphOS boots on Ambient (Workbench)
in... less 5s ! :)
Concerning Rebol on MorphOS, with the version above (Amiga 68k), for example your "Shadow
of The Beast / Arcadia" runs at max 17 FPS...
In generally, Rebol runs well on MorphOS (NO problem of compatibility), but become slow
with applications requiring power...
However, Linux PPC runs also on Pegasos, but I've never tested the version of View for
Linux PPC... (certainly faster than Amiga 68k version ;)

What I know : Genesi (Pegasos/MorphOS) contacted Rebol Company to ask them to port native
Rebol on MorphOS. Rebol company is interesting for that, but has other priorities for
the moment (Pegasos units and users are also too few, not really a market...).
Perharps Carl could say more regarding this point... ;)
Jedi, who want Rebol native on MorphOS ! :)
