I know but this wasn't the case of all the other people on this thread (or I
missed something).

I think it's important to clarify what people are talking about. One of the
classic problem is the confusion between Squeak and E-Toys (or

Squeak is the full multimedia smalltalk for programmers (-> squeak.org).
E-Toys is just a part which use Morphic and its viewer framework for
end-users or kids (-> squeakland.org)

If you talk about "Squeak" on Squeak.org list people expect smalltalk code,
Squeak Browser, Change Set, Method Finder, etc ...
Obviously the two learning curves are very different and the targeted
audience also.

I imagine what people are talking about here is mainly E-Toys (or Squeak
E-Toys) but I could be wrong.
