After evaluating Revolution as a possible replacement for Hypercard as a 
Language software development environment in OSX, I must confess I am 
amazed that at the lack of documentation and what seem like significant 
bugs in the OSX development environment at the introductory or tutorial 
level, executable builds that contain broken disfunctional GUIs.

I have only have worked with the OSX version 2.1 but the problems I have 
seen there,combined with the general lack of user support and 
documentation, lead me to believe it would be a mistake to try to support 
the product on our campus at the present time.

If my experience isn't typical, and some of you have actually developed 
useful educational stacks, please, please set me straight...and kindly 
share with me a working sample if possible.
