I honestly do not believe that a single small company -- and RunRev
is small -- can do a great job of serving both the professional
programming market and the hobbyist/Inventive User market. The needs,
expectations, demands, support requirements, feature sets,
documentation needs, training level and a host of other factors are
just too vastly different between them.
I've been racking my brain the last 48 hours and I cannot come up
with a single development tool company that has succeeded at doing
this since Borland's very early days. I'd be delighted if someone
could point me to a real exception to that rule, but absent that, I
maintain my position. RunRev needs to decide whether it's going to
try to get professional coders to switch to Rev or adopt it as a RAD
or alternative tool, or go after the untapped market potential of the
Inventive User. Until it makes that decision and then permeates the
company and its policies with it, it will have difficulty being as
successful as it can.
