My only point is: when will what you say below NOT be the case? What
if third party products always have stuff that Rev doesn't have? I
think that WILL be the case. It's what makes a dynamic marketplace.
Momentum. Supporting third party products creates a better Revolution.
You think Marcus at Runtime Revolution, Ltd. doesn't want to beat the
crap out of Galaxy's script editor? Sure he does. I want him to try.
Creative tension can be very beneficial for evolution. WIthout the
Pandavas and the Kuravas there would have been no Bhagavad Gita.
It's amazing to hear all of you Mac guys spout a philosophy that is
fully supported in Redmond, WA. Why don't we just get Microsoft to
incorporate all the great features of Mac OS X? We shouldn't have to
buy Mac OS! Let's just buy Vista. Yeah, that's the ticket. Mac OS--in
terms of market share--IS a third party add-on!!
Don't get me wrong...I do all my development on Mac and for the most
part test on Windows. I love Mac OS X and my machine from Apple. But
this "Revolution should be doing this, not third parties" circular
logic leads nowhere.
Runtime Revolution has its work cut out for it with getting a Rev
engine with OOP. Third party product makers are doing their part to
broaden the Revolution offering, bring alternatives and keep the
momentum going. Unless, of course, you're fond of monopolies.
