I normally don't. Never have. But, this time I could not resist because I noticed Linus made a few comments. -Carl REBOL Founder Working 24/7 on next release.

Carl, I hope that you and Linus get talking. I would LOVE to see REBOL included as part of a Linux Distro as is so many others......

Which ones were his? I'm not much of a slashdot follower so I don't know who is who from the handles. :-) Rod Gaither Oak Ridge, NC - USA [rgaither--triad--rr--com]

I'm not a slash-dotter either, but from what I can tell, it looks like the post from "PlaysWithMatches" is Linus. If this is correct, Linus merely pointed to that old, crusty interview with Larry Wall. -- Ed

What Larry Wall Thinks (Score:2, Informative) by PlaysWithMatches (webmaster&dontfearthemeeper,com) on Sunday October 28, @07:09PM (#2490817) (User #531546 Info | http://slashdot.org/) Love or hate Perl, Larry Wall has some interesting thoughts and comments [google.com] on REBOL. Yes, I made REBOL. (Score:1) by reburu on Tuesday October 30, @02:19PM (#2498681) (User #533055 Info) REBOL was designed for semantic exchange and interpretation. It's quite good for distributed computing, it's been a 20 year gig, and you will be using it in a year or two. Sorry if that sounds too buzzy or technical, but it's a concise summary. Been watching your bashing party. Feels like driving through the southern US in 1962. I make my own wine and beer too, but I think I'd rather have what you guys are drinking. But then if it makes me beat up anyone who speaks with an accent, maybe not. -Carl Sassenrath REBOL Founder & CTO
