Well for programming this is true, but even as programmer you type text
quite often. This e.g is written using Emacs. It can handle anything
which resembles text. Now do that with PharoEditor. Search for a
"simple" think as a news reader with a decent Editor in any software
written in Smalltal goo luck

Yes that's an easy escape isn't it. Do it yourself, you do not have
anything else to do.

Even you handle text and you do not use Pharo for that. So yes it's a
wonderful world of POT. 

It does not make sense to really pinpoint on the most weakest spots in
ones Universe. No you are right everything is fine and that what is not
fine, can be easily self-programmed. So make me an offer to implement a
decent Editor in Pharo with at least a somewhat useful Gui. Should be a
piece of cake shouldn't it? 

I will not stress you too much just something like Evolution yepp even
outlook firebird would suite my needs.

Now Smalltalk is now how old? And nothing like that even near
existence. Probably it's not that easy....
