Try not to count the OS X appearance manager crashes towards the 
overall quality of Rev. It's unfortunate OS X is doing this appearance 
manager crash to Rev (or vice-versa) and I'm sure it will go away with 
the next release of Rev.

I haven't been using the Geometry manager or Animation manager, but 
overall I think that Revolution is pretty solid for a version 1.x 

(Although the metacard base of runrev is version 4.x? I still don't 
understand the details at this level)
