Sunanda, I'm not sure about your statements. IMO The ActionScript is pretty
crap . I'm currently working together with Oldes on big FlashMX based
project(6 interactive CD-ROMS) and have to say that developing with this
technology is really big mental pain when comapring with Rebol/View. Yes,
Flash has some better graphics features but View has also lot of things that
Flash is missing. Also don't forget that Flash is version 7 while View is
still under 1.5. If I had few milions of $$ to invest into the RT to be more
I have to work almost everyday with Macromedia products for a few years and
I could say that none of them is worth buyin for such money...and now when
M$ is buing Macromedia it will go in hell of even more bloated software
just a bit of my experience...

Petr, I don't think the World demo will be much faster if done in Flash but
I(or someone with more free time) could try to rewrite it for comparison...
