Richmond,

except that as soon as you upgrade revolution, you need to move
everything to the new release folder. I need to keep multiple versions
of revolution running and I don't want to keep multiple copies of my
100+ MB plugin folder on the machine. I know the engine/IDE will look
in many places for it's files, I just don't know where. :-/

I rather run a BSD than a Linux, but, it would take me forever to
build the bsd desktop with the correct linux compatibility layer that
would allow me to run revolution under bsd... so, I just went ubuntu.
