About View and website.

 [1/1] from: ptretter::norcom2000::com at: 28-Mar-2001 20:13

CONCERNING /VIEW: Maybe I need some clarification from this. Is the difference from /View and /View/Pro supposed to be the command shell, library access, and encryption? If so then I would rather just have /Link with those components and bypass this and make my purchase. I looked at some of the responses on this list and their seems to be a majority that want REBOL to succeed and are already willing to make that purchase. Additionally, seems to me there is more overhead with additional distributions of products that are sublets of other products. If /Link were outrageously priced (Which doesnt appear to be the case), then maybe that would be an attractive alternative but since RT made some very wisely priced decisions on this I vote /View dead. However, I do believe we need some trial type version of /Link to really evaluate the purchase decision. CONCERNING the WEBSITE: I like the new express graphic but the older framework was much more attractive. You should really combine those and utilize that horizontal hyperlink menu. Additionally, why not offer an alternative REBSITE for rebviewers which could stand as a demonstration-in-work to the true alternative to websites.

> About REBOL/View... funny that you ask, because: > > The REBOL team held a three hour meeting yesterday to discuss REBOL/View
and its future. We came up with an excellent solution that provides a free version of View that is upgradable to a professional version that includes a few additional components, such as command shell, library access, and encryption.
> The demand for such a product seems high. We get a lot of email from users
who want it. Of course, our hope is that all of you will want to buy the View/Pro product. And, that you would convince your friends, companies, comrades, and neighbors to buy it too. We need that to happen! Tell everyone.
> I should point out that REBOL/View is not REBOL/Link. There would be no
auto-sync, Serve side, desktop, installer, etc. But, it does provide a solid 1.0 for you to rely on. It would be official... and no more expiration woes.
> Unfortunately, I cannot provide more detail at this time. We are still
planning it out. However, if the decision is to proceed, we would release View/Pro 1.0 in less than a week.
