Pharo, as a Smalltalk is "a powerful information system... that can grow as
the user's ideas grow.". It is composed of a Programming Language - "an
interface between the models in the human mind and those in computing
hardware" - and a User Interface, which "matches the human communication
system to that of the computer" (quotes from the Blue Book). As a live,
open, dynamic environment, it is much more than just "a programming
language", which is why straight syntax comparisons to other languages miss
the point.
