I've been programming with rebol on linux for a long time. First on RH 6.0 and
then on RH 7.2. My /core installation goes into /usr/bin. My /view installation
is ~/bin/rebol (I installed that as a user).
You don't have a edit a registry, such as is the case in windows.
But if you are going to do CGI scripts, I STRONGLY advise that you
set a scriptalias.
Although linux is my OS of choice, rebol is equally stable on windows,
at least in my experience.
If you are thinking about developing scripts on Linux that may be imported
to windows, then you might want to think about a dual-boot or using a something
like win4lin. It's a good idea to verify performance on a different platform...
