I agree with Dan
The first step in HC was cool
The first step in Rev is awful for a beginner (not for a old lover of HC
But this list illustrates that the second step in Rev is too awful even
for a not beginner
This list is full of exceptions, particularities (it's not only the
fault of Rev, obviously).
To illustrate the problem see http://www.macintouch.com/hypercard.html
Perhaps "Norpath Elements Studio" is the solution for beginner
Perhaps Revolution understands the threat and will make a good and easy
It's urgent :actually you lost customers for that reason (all my friends
don't want enter in Rev although they have a good teacher...me! :) )
That's a pity to see the best HC-savior losts its chance (think about
Bill Atkinson's which thinks he missed the mark )
the dilemma : tool only for developper or tool for users ?
Think to Project Builder. Compare with Rev......access
Think to HTML-XML... with product like Tinderbox ...compare with your
Soap Toolbox ....
It's wonderful effort for you and the developpers ( and I don't forget
to congratulate your works, friendly)
The users vote for products like Tinderbox or others....
The history always answers : "the winners is who give more facility,
more quickly and for more numerous people"
Don't forget this : make quickly a easy entrance to Rev not to make
Rev-application but to live better with computers
