I agree. In fact, when talking with Enterprise customers, I avoid words like
HyperCard, scripting, and Apple and instead focus on JIT compile, java-like,
and RAD. It also doesn't hurt to mention the MC engine has been around over
10 years.

RR ability to rapidly develop and deploy enterprise solutions (faster than
VB in my experience) gives it quite an edge over JAVA and other
cross-platform or browser based solutions.
