[REBOL] Re: SDK licensing issues

Hi Volker, VN> MS uses VB for user-scripting all the time. With regard to internet VN> dangerous, yes. But for a big part because VB cant lock system-access, VN> while 'secure can. With rebol a macro can only harm the application, VN> in VB take over the system. Thats different. Althought 'secure could VN> use improvements, specially restricting network better (to certain VN> hosts/ports only, currently it can play proxy to the internal VN> network). And needs better explanation. Yup. The main thing is to understand what can happen and structure things accordingly. e.g. can a user trigger an error to bring up a console and see all the internals of an encapped app, etc. -- Gregg
