> Well I tried pharo just for fun , I knew it would not last. Pharo is unpopular, not enough libraries, small community , not nearly enough documentation. Pharo was nothing more than a little break from python. After all we all know smalltalk is dead , right ? The plan was simple, have fun with Pharo , steal some ideas, go back to python where you can get things done. Little did I know. Several months later here I am. I still have not found the reason to give up on Pharo, my questions have been answered , found many great libraries to work with and the documentation is getting better and better.

Its so unique that I just cant compare it with anything else, and the uniqueness is not just in details, its almost everywhere. I am so addicted to live coding that I cant see myself going back to the old way. This is the future of coding.
