This is always coming up on list. The problem is it compares Apples
to Oranges. They are both good and have their own place for different
projects. But with that said if you want something that is a breeze
to use and want to spend more time building a useful app than
debugging code I would go with Revolution.

This list is just one of the many resources available for Rev users.
It is the best list I have ever seen or been on. It is a nice mix of
advanced users and new users and I always come here to help and to be
helped. There are a lot of users but I don't know the numbers.

The IDE is being cleaned up with every release (all software has
bugs) and some people experience more bugs and others experience
less. But the finished applications that are built are very solid. I
would say for a RAD tool that it has less bugs than some and the same
as others. For new users that have maybe ever programmed before it
has more bugs than they are used to. As a cross platform tool it
definitely has less bugs.

I know people create CGIs and there is a lot of activity with
Databases on this list. I would say though that Rev shines when
building UIs and can't be beat in time to deployment. I can do in REV
what it takes our C,C# programers months and months in just a few
days. I can do in REV what it takes our Director, Flash, Java
programmers weeks and weeks to do in just a day or two.
Welcome to the REVOLUTION, I hope you fall in love with Revolution
and show up on the list...
