RunRev vs RealBasic (Richard Gaskin)

It seems to me a more significant contest between the two systems would
be to assign the same project to two very experienced developers with
each development environment, and see who gets it finished quicker.

I cannot imagine many situations where productivity is not of great
significance. If a person can create a program in half the time of his
competitors, he can afford to charge less to his clients, and still make
a bigger profit.

This is not to say that Real Basic is not a fast development environment
- I honestly do not know that much about it one way or the other. I am
just saying that this particular contest misses the point for like 99
out of 100 programming situations.

Hi David,

A quick Google shows you're the product manager for Real Basic. Guess 
that sorta slipped your sig ;-)

I certainly understand your desire to defend RB to the max.

I followed closely the previous RB-RR thread, and don't recall it as you

do. Perhaps we should discuss over lunch? (I'm in Austin, too!)
