Just to play devil's advocate for a moment:

There are at least two great open source editors out there. Orion which is
free (5733-OPS) and Liam Allan has published his version called ILEditor.
See: http://worksofbarry.com/ileditor

So now the question: Do you want IBM spending time/money on a lite version
of RDi, taking away resources from the full RDi product, or would you like
them to concentrate solely on the full RDi product and allow the open source
community to develop your lite versions?

I vote open source.

There is an request (RFE) for an RDi-Lite version which would be free
or at least much cheaper. It's status is currently "Under
Consideration." So at least IBM is thinking about it.

You can add your vote at:

developerWorks requires an IBM ID for which registration is free.
