You can be sure it can :)

If you follow the hype and advertising you go to Java - if you search
for something more powerful you search for it and will find Smalltalk.

Same for ST/MT - if you need something more specific (like building DLLs, COM
components, access DirectX/OpenGL, ... and stay with Smalltalk you may
end up at their system. 
 
I know several projects using MT, it is also used for games (like Aura - Fate of the Ages).

Note that also other Smalltalks are able to build DLLs like Dolphin, ST/X and SmallScript.
