We do bundle as much stuff as possible into REALbasic, and it's only the "edgier" stuff that people make plug-ins for. To me, one of the greatest things about REALbasic is the large number of plug-ins (both free and commercial) available for it. The things one can do only with a plug-in are much fewer than the reverse (i.e., many of the functions added by plug-ins are extensions, not wholesale additions to, native REALbasic capabilities). > ><snip> > >*** this is not an invitation for geoff to post a reply.
