General Development Revolution is descended in spirit from Hypercard (HC). When Apple's support for HC withered, Scott Raney developed Metacard (MC), a near clone. Metacard was then bought by Revolution (RR), based in Scotland. Metacard was two quite distinct things: an engine, and an IDE. When Metacard was sold, the MC IDE became public domain. It still exists, is volunteer maintained, and it can be used with the latest RR engine. Some on the RR user mailing list prefer the much simpler MC IDE to the RR IDE, at least for initial project development. Other IDEs are possible, and there is a third party (non-free) IDE called Galaxy.

For a hobby, for quite a lot of people, yes it may be too expensive in the full version, and they should then probably try either the Media version or PythonCard, which will be harder work in some ways but is also quite interesting.

But for a professional, its just part of the tools of the trade, and its quite competitively priced compared to similar things on the market.

Revolution also do the usual educational discounts.
