Quite possibly . . .

A merry quote:

"Here’s a question: is Runtime Revolution the cross-platform application development tool for people who just want to get things done?

Answer: quite possibly."



And that is 'it'; 'quite possibly', because, while Runtime Revolution
offers far more than HyperCard ever offered (even if one only
considers that it runs on loads of systems), it cannot do all that
HyperCard could do.

And this is why those of us who came to RR from HC still feel
slightly cheesed-off by all the hype from RR.

Of course, if you, either, know nothing about HyperCard, or, don't give
a tuppenny toss for history, this consideration is unimportant.

Personally, I can find 100 more reasons for saying that RR is extremely
good, and better than HyperCard; but, self-appointed gadfly that I am,
I can still think of a few niggles . . . 

I can also point a sideways finger at SuperCard (which I am not very
keen on) and mention - native non-rectangular buttons.
