+1. All the little things make a difference, especially to newbies that may
have misconceptions/doubts about Smalltalk.

I think they are both valuable. For me, the one-click is great to showcase
Smalltalk's ability to run on any mainstream OS. I think the idea that in
one operation I can drag my Smalltalk world onto a USB stick, plug it into
any computer I may find, and have everything work is pretty cool. OTOH, for
a dedicated use, like a web app on a unix server, the cleaner
platform-specific approach seems better.
