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... -- Tim Johnson <[tim--johnsons-web--com]>
