As some of you know, I was a Smalltalk fan&developer in the last twelve years. I have stopped working on smalltalk years ago... anyway, I am happy to look forward the Squeak Smalltalk Community from time to time.
I republish here an original article posted by me on SqueakPeople, over 4 years ago.
The reason is simple: I am very happy to see a Squeak code fork called "Sapphire" which share most of my thoughts:
Sapphire wants to take a fresh look at the Smalltalk philosophy and current implementations. The idea is to produce high quality open-source packages that will be loadable on a micro kernel.
I will take a look to Sapphire, and you will find my throughts here in the next months.
