Prototype or production? (start to finish)

Like the others who have responded thusfar, I use Rev for projects from 
start to finish. Since I just finished my first major project 
(interactive software to teach transfusion medicine), I can't tell you 
how many satisfied users I'll have, but I certainly hope it will be 
hundreds, if not more.

You'd be surprised at how much you can do in Rev alone--I know I am, 
when I see some of the apps people on this list have created.
