Dude, having a priced-like-a-disposable-toy $49 version does far more 
for that than a single line in one press release.

Besides, as I've mentioned before, when it comes to evangelizing Rev as 
a second language, a single line in one press release is nothing 
compared to the nature of Rev itself:

One could argue that whatever more "professional" wording you might 
prefer would be even more misleading, because ultimately no matter how 
you seduce an experienced programmer to using Rev, the language and 
object model will always and only be very different from anything 
they've learned before.

I don't think this is necessarily a bad thing, but if you really think 
this one line from a single press release is going to have more impact 
on adoption among professional developers than the product experience 
itself, I would encourage you to reconsider your premise.  That press 
release has already left the station, and there are much, much bigger 
fish to fry....
