Morphic is a bit ugly (visually and architecturally) for creating a
corporate application. You could, in theory, do it, but I've never had fun
using Morphic directly. I use ToolBuilder instead.

Like David Zmick said, wxSqueak and GTK for Squeak exist. I don't know much
about them.

The best option, using Squeak, is to look at Seaside for making web-based
applications. http://www.seaside.st/. Web based applications seem to be all
the craze these days.

Otherwise, for a commercial application with a real GUI rather than a
web-based one(*), it's probably better to use a commercial Smalltalk.
http://www.smalltalk.org/ has a list of them. I've heard that VisualWorks is
quite good, although other people may suggest others.

(*) The implication that web-based GUIs are fake is my opinion only.
