That's what someone that does not know REBOL and Carl Sassenrath
would say. But, Carl isn't like that. Usability always comes first
in REBOL. You see, why would you need so many datatypes while
other languages just have a few? Why do we have READ and WRITE
while OPEN-COPY-INSERT-CLOSE would be enough?
That quote simply isn't right. Java is just bloat, REBOL is just
simple. These are two different concepts, though probably they're
hard to fit in some minds. ;)
Never forget, REBOL has a nice flat surface, but you'll never know
how deep it is unless you submerge.
