Awesome, Kaj!
Wish I had more time.  I'd love to play with Syllable.
Kaj
Thanks
R3 has been included in Syllable Desktop for a year and a half. Syllable Server ships with R2 and a collection of REBOL frameworks

Kaj
I added Fork's preliminary R3 port of Red to the build system, with an overlay for Syllable Desktop so it can be experimented with there:

Ever thought of setting up an AWS ami ?  With Cheyenne and QM configured ?
Kaj
Yes, I wanted to do that even before EC2 opened up, to get a business model going. But regardless of their promises, after all these years they still don't support their payment system outside the US
GrahamC
All you need is a US bank account
but that is difficult to obtain if you're not a citizen
Kaj
And that will get you all the trouble of running a US company
GrahamC
However, you can still upload an AMI ... don't need to be paid for that
Kaj
Sure, but I'd have to create it, and I don't have an incentive

Does Syllable run under VirtualBox? If so is it able to access Virtual Box Shared storage?
Kaj
It runs under VB, but file sharing probably requires VB extensions, and those are not ported to Syllable
However, you can use networking file systems such as FTP and Windows networking. Those are a bit primitive under Syllable, but clients are available
PeterWood
Yes file sharing does require the Virtual Box extensions.  I use Virtual Box file sharing to run the Red tests under OS X, Windows and Ubuntu. It works well for me.
A few minutes after posting my question, I remembered that REBOL 2 doesn't run on Syllable so I couldn't easily extend my testing to Syllable.
