heya hey, folks, the famous sentence "the wait is over" finally fullfilled :-) ...well, the wait seems to be "nearly" over ;-) They should ask us for assigning IOS better name - how are we going to call it - Rebos? Magma? Well, ehm, a little bit of marketing buzz - IOS Lite, IOS Express, IOS Host, IOS Group .... repacked View, Express, Command? I think I will stay with old names - much cooler :-) http://www.rebol.com Cheers, -pekr-

Hi Petr, And to say I was wishing for a Rebol/OS all weekend, something to completely replace my workspace, forget Windows, forget Linux, gimme Rebol/OS... seems to be becoming true... looking forward to this IOS ! Would be cool to be always booting in Rebol ! I mean, I no longer use my computer for anything else except other things I could do from rebol ! Best, Chris

Hi Christian, OK OK - we all know what was original master plan of Carl - first - to be hosted - then become native. However - I am not sure that plan is still actual. You should filter what stands behind Rebol/IOS - it is refined Rebol/View + messaging capabilities of /Express, probably refined too. I think you still can't replace your Windows :-) Maybe you could try to boot with Rebol as default shell for Windows, instead of Explorer? :-) However - if RT didn't do something to fs stuff for e.g., just don't try to open file dialog for your Windows XP directory, or you will wait and wait and wait :-) I am very curious, what changed under the hood, in technology itself (Core, View engine, etc.) -pekr- Christian Morency wrote:

Hi Pekr, Of course I know they wouldn't make the jump to native yet, and in a sens it might be better to be hosted, then I could use any OS to log on my Rebol/IOS ! That would make sense... Best, Chris

I actually like IOS, but it could be a bit confusing/problematical... http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/732/abc/ Of course, they're "IOS Express", "IOS Lite" and so on, which probably lets them get away with it... RebOS is quite good.

What I would like to see is a dos version of Rebol and IOS. I have a bunch of old computers that are too slow for anything by DOS. My kids would have a blast learning Rebol. I also have an old laptop computer that could be resurrected. Louis At 12:32 AM 9/11/2001 -0400, you wrote:

Hi Pekr, << They should ask us for assigning IOS better name - how are we going to call it - Rebos? Magma? >> Maybe they want to go with "Rebellious". IOS doesn't sound so good out of context though. --Gregg

Since one is into name discussions here, how about RĘBOS? (relative AND expression-based...). I kinda like the Ę. (-: ~H Du skrev (Tuesday 11.09.2001, kl. 19.32):

I vote for Chomsky. (Like Noam). See my article at http://www.frozen-north-linuxonline.com/ scroll down to "Tim's Bytes" I do like your name however, but I'm afraid some Micro$oft $oftware will butcher it. (Just makeing some tongue-in-cheek comments while I watch horror unfold on my TV - too distracted to write code.) tj

REBOL/IOS quickly spoken can be pronounced as "rebellious" :) Matt.

Wow, I had no idea an OS was in the works. However, I tend to think that direction when it comes to Carl's ideas. Anyway, the REBOS name sounds cool. Where can we get a demo of this or something. I'm very curious as to how this compares. Also, would be nice to get some stimulation in my managers about this. Paul Tretter
