I started using Squeak only a few months back, though I have been in systems
and network programming for over two decades. The learning curve in Squeak is
a bit steep because of two reasons a) it is not just an IDE but a whole
computing env (like GNU/Linux) and, b) It suffers from extreme monoculture -
it is 100% Smalltalk. So frameworks take much longer to develop and get into
the basic image.
But once you get past the initial misdirections and hurdles, it is a nice
environment to "think" in.

So far, I haven't strayed much beyond the core classes and Morphic in Squeak,
so I am afraid I can't help you much. But there are many others in its
mailing list who could help you out.
