[REBOL] Re: Hacking 32-bit rebol for 64-bit ubuntu

From: pwawood::gmail at: 26-May-2007 7:40

Tim Is it living in Alaska that gave you such persistence and ingenuity? I'm more than impressed. Thanks for taking the time to tell us. On the portability front, RT has been finding it difficult to keep up for the last couple of years. The versions for many platforms are stuck at Core 2.5.1. I think that Carl recognised the problem and has adopted a different design for Rebol 3 to ease porting Rebol. (You may want to take a look at his slides from the recent DevCon - http://www.rebol.com/notes/devcon07-carl.zip ) From my point of view, at the moment RT still sees Windows as its main platform based, I presume, on current installed PC numbers. Linux and Mac OS X come a distant second, even though I believe they are more popular with the type of developers who are likely to adopt Rebol. (Windows developers seem to develop exclusively for Windows, developers who use other systems appear more likely to be interested in cross-platform).
