Abstract
As a high-level development system that runs on nearly every major operating system, the MetaCard engine provides compelling benefits for a wide range of software projects.

Keywords: MetaCard, Revolution, software development, cross-platform, scripting, rapid development.

This is merely a placeholder page while the article is being completed. In brief, the MetaCard engine runs on Mac OS, OS X, Win32, and twelve flavors of UNIX/Linux, outperforms Java by a huge margin, and requires less than a tenth of the development time.

More to come....
