that would be a little unfair, since were on the Revolution Mailing 
list and not on the language wars mailing list, almost everyone here 
choosed Revolution for one reason or another, there's no absolute truth 
when it comes to taste. All we could do is talk about features of each 
language, but it would be like David against every one for eventually 
it would come to abstract things like Transcript Vs REALBasic BASIC 
Dialect... that's not the case.

I suggest you to get evaluations versions for both languages, subscribe 
to both mailing lists and invite all the users to send you their Three 
top reasons to use that language, then you should read those things 
(for there are gems in each one of them, that you do not see on a quick 
eval). after that you should evaluate them like doing a similar 
software in both, talking to the respectives communities to see if 
you're not missing anything that could ease your way.

then after completing both projects, you should feel the dragging force 
of your true heritage! :D

eheheh oh boy, I need sleep...
