Why isn't Rev more popular?

I'm just getting into Rev so I am by no means an expert but.... When  
in colledge as a CS major (late 80s) I remember lots of snobbery  
around tools like hypercard by hardcore CS people. Personaly I think  
a tool should be as high level as possible while still getting the  
job done. I later became a Lotus Notes Developer which has huge  
similarities to Rev/Hypercard. I found that same attitude towards  
tools like Notes by mainstream programers. Personally I love using  
these kinds of tools but I bet Rev is a hard sell to anybody that  
lives breathes and has career based on doing things the hard way in  
tools like C/Java Etc.
