[REBOL] Re: Encap/Distributions

From: tim:johnsons-web at: 20-Oct-2001 12:08

I don't pretend to know nothin' about nothin', but I do make my living writing code..... So here's my two cents worth and it is based upon the concept of COMPETITION (not shouting, just emphasizing). and FREEdom (not shouting, just emphasizing) Look at Borland: They now make bcc32 FREE. You like it then you just might want to get Builder for $'s. Look at Python, Perl. They are FREE, but the folks at ActiveState are making money. Look at mysql. FREE. The developers make money. Make rebol/core FREE. No strings attached. Do every thing you can (RT) to include rebol as a distribution on every distro of Linux. That's the only way that rebol can really COMPETE with python and perl. BTW: Carl, Holger, dudes... I believe that both Larry Wall and Guido von Rossum have jobs for life.
