Have to agree. Many months ago runrev said they were hiring a web
developer to redesign the website.
I would remove the cross-sell link to Ten Thumbs typing tutor in "Other
Products". I donnow- it just seems amateurish to imagine a programmer
with "ten thumbs". What, does the Runrev IDE correct typing errors too?

It's a tough issue. There are some Linux users on the list. But instead
of Runrev trimming the list of official available platforms, what's
happening in practice is they are poorly supported: one poster to this
list every month or so begs for a SGI IRIX Rev engine which he has been
trying to locate for a long time. Don't know if it's the same for the
other UNIX platforms.
Not sure, but I think metacard used to be developed on Linux. So
building the engine for UNIX should not be a major hurdle. The number
of platforms available is one of Runrev's most unique features! So I
hope they never trim the list of platforms supported.
