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 multimedia friendly :-) 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 products... 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... regards, Cyphre
