They did do this well over a year ago…I don’t think ActiveRuby or
Visual Ruby is on their roadmap…or it was not earlier this year when I
talked to their CEO. They did not (yet) see Ruby as a viable market for
a (pay for) product.
Yet if they are protecting the name now, it’s probably because they
think it may become widespread enough, and thus want to keep the path
open just in case.
BTW, Active can be downloaded for free. Couldn’t
they package an ActiveRuby too? On the selling side, they could
package it in the CD which contains all the others as "extra value"
or something …
