Squeak is an open, highly-portable Smalltalk-80 implementation whose virtual machine is written entirely in Smalltalk, making it easy to debug, analyze, and change. The image above was created in Squeak, and illustrates several of Squeak's abilities, including the ability to scale and rotate bitmap images at any color depth, anti-aliased TrueType fonts and vector graphics.

I keep looking at Squeak, but ... it's got the same problem that all the other Smalltalk derivatives do: it's all or nothing. If you want the nice pure OO language you have to take the whole 1978-industrial pre-iconic barebones user interface as well. Even if you're wiling to develop a binding to the native toolkits, you'll have to live in 1978 while you're doing it.

If I want to develop software in 1978 I'll use BSD... at least then I can glue my K&R-C pieces into a GUI that someone else is interested in using.

I love Smalltalk as a programming language, but we've made some advances in the last few decades. Let me run it from the shell and ProjectBuilder and give me a class library that'll talk to Cocoa...

To those that want Smalltalk with a Cocoa interface, check out F-script...
