[Pharo-users] R: About "it's not pharo but smalltalk"

Thanks for mentioning me.

I would just like to point out that I made FuzzyWorld in both Pharo and VSE,
but since all my applications were in VSE (which I have been using since
1985!) I have brought it to VSE for graphic content and tools I had already
developped.
As you can see in the first slide of my presentation, FuzzyWorld is an
extension of the Smalltalk classes and not of VSE or Pharo; both can use it.
Anyway, I am a Pharo member, so I have been surprised for comments on my
presentation.
If I can express my opinion, this discussion is based on nothing: in my
opinion Pharo is Smalltalk; everything else is VAPOR WARE.

Yes, these are two completely different issues...

- Pharo is Smalltalk

- you don't want general Smalltalk discussion polluting this forum

I get it. But as I point out  here
<http://forum.world.st/Fuzzy-Thinking-in-Smalltalk-tp5111111p5111191.html>
, Pharo is in a unique position and I would hope that the Pharo community is
willing to participate in evangelizing Smalltalk.

If there is truly another avenue that is as effective, I'm all ears.
