Just to add another voice in the discussion...
I agree totally with Rodney. I was just about to send a message in the
same flavor to the mailing list, when I received his message!
Just to illustrate my point more clearly:
At work, we are developing a high level mathematical software that whe
would like to see distributed on as many plattforms as possible. In
this case, CLIM is a wonderful tool.
But when I come home from work, I change into a plain Mac hacker who
loves the Mac, loves to program Macintosh games, etc...
I think a lot of us MCL'ers are in the same situation!?
