Actually comparing RunRev's shortcomings with Real BASIC's shortcomings
seems slightly silly:
All RAD tools of this sort have shortcomings insofar as they are attempting
to be all things to all men; i.e. to run on a vast number of operating
And the small copy-paste problem I pointed out on Ubuntu 10.04 while
apps are running is very SMALL; there are probably lots more VERY SMALL
shortcomings: they are not, ultimately nearly as important as the few BIG
shortcomings - I, for one, know that if the few big shortcomings are
will ahrdly notice the small ones. However the presence of the bigs ones
to concentrate the mind somewhat into a sort of 'witch-hunter' mentality
jalouses at every little blip.
The big shortcomings have already been discussed . . . endlessly.
