Okay, I see now that you are correct.  The two apps launch separately 
and they are now, in fact, Rev 2.5 and Dreamcard.  The problem is, as 
they both look and function the exact same except for standalone 
building (apparently), why the heck would anyone prefer a 10 hour trial 
to a 30 day trial for (essentially) the exact same product?  Seems like 
everyone would opt for the 30 day choice.  *shrug*

Regardless, although Rev looks great and seems to be lowering the 
learning curve with each new release, the heir to HyperCard it still 
ain't, especially with respect to elegance of interface and ease of 
use.  Dreamcard needs further simplification if it hopes to target the 
educational and home markets.
