Well ... last night, I downloaded the Linux and Windows versions of Squeak,
and I plan to install them as soon as I finish a couple of current projects.
I only played with Smalltalk before this, but I find I still have the old
Digitalk Smalltalk V 286 around, and I know there's a Smalltalk for Linux.

As a preliminary to this investigation, let me raise one threshhold
question. Are we interested in looking at Squeak as

        a. a development platform for cross-OS educational applications (in
the style of Java, only, presumably, better)?


        b. a programming environment suitable for teaching programming
concepts and technigues to K-12 students (in the style of LOGO, only,
presumably, better)?

or both?
