Transcript should be called Transcript

I usually say "Runtime Revolution IDE". Most people here (in Europe) 
have at least heard about it. But it is called Revolution in the tiobe 
programming community index 
(http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html). And 
there is absolutely no reason to avoid word "script". Not the name of 
the language but the result of its use in business is what matters... 
There are other languages widely in use with non-aggressive and totally 
non-cool names also including the word "script" like Smalltalk, 
JavaScript, JavaFX Script, ABAP, Lua, Ada, Alice, Focus, Groovy, Boo, 
Clean, Euphoria, Squirrel and even MOO and MUMPS (!!!) etc...

All the best
