I was looking for a new environment now that Hypercard and Mac OS X
don't play well together. The default beginner programming environment
that everyone was leaning me towards was RealBasic. I watched the
RealBasic demo and the Revolution demo at WWDC. (Geoff Canyon did a
great job.) I was sitting with people who write a lot of code, probably
code you have run or are running today. They knew I was looking for a
new environment and had recommended RealBasic. After the two demos, in
their mind there was no comparison, they were going to start
recommending Revolution for anyone starting out on a new programming
single user development system.
So I think you are making a good choice.
