Please reread more carefully the above. I do give credit to Smalltalk's 
author for the *term* "OOP", and *most* (not *all*) of the concepts (I 
strongly disagree with your opinion that message-passing is not a core 
concept of OO).

FWIW, I first mentionned Simula too (about the state-machine and 
simulation aspect), then sniped this mention because I thought it was 
getting a bit too much OT - we're not on comp.object here.
