Everything is an object (should be communicated purely by messages):
Although it is not a typed language, its interactive graphic
environment (full GUI IDE, widget sets, browser - which allows
in-place creating/editing classes, tracer) is impressive and has been
around more than 20 years... Actually the origin of all GUIs IS
At www.squeak.org resides a full-featured FREE Smalltalk; I was quite
impressed. Dozens of so-called "morphs" (widgets) for complex
GUI-building, 3D animation and virtual worlds; multimedia access,
built-in email-client and WWW browser, pen support (YES it runs on
iPAQ :-))) )
Wishing someday REBOL would be "armored" this way ... :-(
