The REBOL/View Distributed Desktop is a kind of specialized Internet
browser that lets you easily see content published by other REBOL
users on the World Wide Reb.
The desktop makes it easy to execute distributed Internet applications
located around the world. REBOL programs, utilities, documents, images,
presentations, and other files and folders appear in the desktop as
icons. These icons can be executed or viewed with a single mouse click.
That's right, a single click, not a double click.
The REBOL/View desktop currently runs across 27 different computer
For developers, the desktop offers a way to distribute and share
programs and content. It uses standard Internet protocols for
exchanging information; any web server can be used to publish
REBOL/View desktop content.
The desktop is also an example of what can be built with REBOL. It
is a REBOL X-Internet application which just happens to be bundled
with the REBOL/View distribution package. Its source code is open,
so you can enhance it; extend it; learn from it.
The Reb is a world wide network of REBOL content, distributed computing
applications, documentation, and services. All of these are made
available through the REBOL desktop.
The Reb is an open network. Anyone who has access to a web server can
publish content that will be available to anyone else using the REBOL/View
desktop, no matter where they are in the world.
Creating distributed desktop content is easier than creating HTML pages.
The format for doing so is described here.
