If you guy View/Pro, /Command, or the SDK, you get a lot more than a "bare bones interpreter" IMO, but that is *my* opinion. I'd rather talk about software than free-versus-commercial issues though. :)

I have both Ruby and Python here, and they're good languages, no doubt. But neither has an integrated system for building GUIs, and I haven't found anything that is as simple to deploy as REBOL (two of the many reasons I like it so much).

I choose (and pay for) REBOL, even though there are free languages out there that I could use. And if you don't need to make system calls, you can use the free version(s) of REBOL. :)

Thanks for writing!

    If you want to be able to deploy the ruby interpreter and deploy it like Rebol, just compile it staticly( ok, not an easy task, but it's doable ) against the libs and then, viola, just shove it anywhere in your system, Path it, and use it.
