Here is an answer for "what is Pharo?"

There will be two images:
"Pharo-Core": the image in which the development of Pharo takes place
"Pharo": the image to develop your application with (= "Pharo-Core" +  
IDE tools [1])

"Pharo" is the image that will be officially shipped (packaged as a  
one-click image). "Pharo-Core" on the other hand will be important for  
deployment as it has a low memory footprint.

Cheers,
Adrian
