Hi Judy,

Where Revolution is geared towards programmers,
Dreamcard is aimed at the consumer market -- I'm sure
future revisions will bring more differences between
the products.
If I were looking for a tool to make small tools for
myself, I'd look at what was available for my
immediate needs and how well Dreamcard stacks up
against tools in the same market.
While I will take my time to check every little detail
before parting with $999 for Rev Enterprise, I think a
bit of experimenting with Dreamcard would convince me
in no time.
After all, I bought Revolution 1.1 after having looked
over the feature set on the website and seeing it work
on both my Windows and Mac portables -- a decision
taken after barely 5 hours of play time.
And boy, am I glad I decided to take it :-)
