REALbasic does take more memory than well designed C programs.
Now all Macs ship with 1GB of RAM

REALbasic does take more CPU time than well designed C programs.
Most user's CPU's are more or less idle all the time.

REALbasic does create bigger files than Xcode.
Most people nowdays have a fast DSL connection.
The most affordable MacBook comes with a 120GB hard drive.

With C/C++ the programmer's own resources are very much occupied.
There is a huge amount of information to remember and take care of.
With REALbasic, the user can use these spared resources in other areas.

You can't write a game like WOW with REALbasic, as such thing would require the absolutely optimal use of the computer, but this doesn't mean that you are limited to just writing stuff like database apps with REALbasic.

Features which are now crucial for me were just included a year ago.
And they are still developing it.

When it comes to bugs, in my own experience, the apps I have used extensively, they all have more or less bugs, except Reason.

Paying for bug fix releases?
REAL software is not a big company.

Usually the same code works for both Mac and Windows, which is just amazing.

REALbasic and C++ can work together too, you can hook your REALbasic application to C++ libraries easily.

The IDE itself is slow to operate.
How fast can you really write?
Isn't that what most of the work is about?

It is a Rapid Environment and you can accomplish good results with significantly smaller development teams and/or timelines.

Disco Software (developer) commented on 22 Oct 2005
Hi all,
Recently new releases of Disco have been coming quite fast. I've thought it might be a little annoying to download and install minor updates of Disco every two days. Starting at version 2.7 i've decided to make beta releases of versions first. The software will then be in beta state for 2-3 weeks. These beta releases are only available from the "Beta Releases" section of
[Version 2.6.9]
