It's NOT Free.. (was) Re: Re: The future of Rebol -achieving critica

 [1/1] from: ryanc::iesco-dms::com at: 21-May-2001 18:17

I think it is a bad idea. Especially with Core, as it is so contrary to established perspectives. How about T-shirts and bumber stickers? I could use some. How about a, where you can take rebol courses for $$. How about a "Licensed" developer program, where developers who pass a certification, can pay to get put on a list of "official developers" on your site. Even some type of use limitation? Personally I have no objections paying for rebol, I just dont like the surprise. This just contradicts previous statements about its use, damaging to yours and my credibility. Its changing the rules in the middle of the game. IF I was under the impression that there was going to be a charge for Core, then fine. But I was under no such impression, and RT gave me reason to be. Now I am in a position to rewrite alot of work, or tell some freinds, customers, and co-workers, that they must pay RT some bones. I have'nt got into such arrangements with View yet, largely because of its unkown licensing status during beta, but with Core, I counted on that being free. --Ryan
