According to http://www.rebol.com/license.html it is (partly) free only 
as beer. Why bother when we have tons of other scripting languages which 
are really free? I had Amiga so I know who the author of REBOL is and I 
guess it may be innovative language but still I thing closed source 
nature makes it effectively dead and not worth of losing time with it.

Or is it open source now? They had such idea 
http://www.rebol.net/blogs/0086.html but maybe abandoned it.
