Syllable, AtheOS As the Syllable project predicted many years ago, version 3 of the REBOL programming language has finally been open sourced, under the Apache 2 licence (screenshot on Syllable Desktop). Also, the alpha version of the high-level Red programming language, supporting Syllable Desktop, has been released, by now in version 0.3.1 (screenshot, demo program, video at the Science Park in Amsterdam).

In your head, yes. But that's exactly what programming is: rearranging thoughts all the time.

Many of the people who use REBOL have strong math backgrounds. They're not hindered by REBOL's precedence rules. In fact, REBOL has a math-like elegance to it.

One way to look at it is that a math background should make you a more flexible thinker. When you start a math assignment, you first have to define the rules of the system in which you will calculate. Different math systems have quite different rules. It shouldn't be a big stretch to define different rules for operator precedence.
