-- Limiting, you bet. I consider a tool cross platform when a tool handles 
the core features of each platform. RR simply does't, look at lack of MDI 
support. Ken Ray wrote a great spec whose features could have been slowly fullfilled 
over the 2yrs since its introduction. The code to do fake MDI in RR IDE is a 
hack, a working one yes, but a hack. And its not even explained to others who 
could even use that hack if one wanted "revMDI". 
I challege rr team to post a free tutorial on Menbars and MDI on revonline in 
the next 60days ;-)
This posting would help newbies and those working strictly on Windows to make 
best use of RR.
