I think all if you have drank a bit too much of the rev coolaid. This dicussion was about Languages with a capital "L". Comparing rev on the same level with C is like comparing Islam with sarah palin's local prayer house. Lets be reasonable please.

No. Time for car analogies (Noooo!!!):
If someone comes to the car salesman, and says "I'd want to buy a

Xtalk is a loose description of types of languages, which includes
hypercard as well as Rev. Of course the analogy will break down
quickly if you ask 10 xtalk followers whether applescript is an xtalk
language or not.
Describing stuff is always hard, especially with the name trinity of
RunRev marketing, but using xtalk for just one language will probably
garner you some internet hate :)
