Agreed. Way back when Rebol was enjoying its 15 minutes of fame I gave
it a good look, and found that i just didn't look as nice as Rev stuff.
Part of that is that they didn't double-buffer their windows, so the
redraws were abysmal; maybe they've fixed that since then.
But overall, aside from a browser plugin I've seen nothing in Rebol that
couldn't be done in Rev. And if someone took the time to make a handy
library (back when I had time on my hands I thought of calling it
"Revol" <g>) to provide one-liners for anything Rebol does that isn't
already a one-liner in Transcript.
When it was the only game in town, Rebol was way cool. But that was a
long time ago, and Rev has grown far beyond it....
