What I want is to Google for the ISPs that are offering the tech I want and then researching their prices and what others say about them. With ISPs though, you get next to no hits if REBOL's part of the tech you're wanting. And it'll stay that way until it's fully open-source. As it is, REBOL can't claim to being a net-friendly language. >
It can. You just limit REBOL to server only usage. Why? Is it the only area of possible usage? Give me AltME written in PHP. Give me IOS written in PHP. Give me ViewTop written in PHP. You are limiting REBOL experience just to one case - webserver development .... I think that if ppl want, they find solution, if they just wish, they find excuses :-) Petr
