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.

Good luck.
