Squeak is the Smalltalk programming environment which has been used to
create Etoys (and Scratch).
Saving a Project is indeed kaputt since the introduction of environments
in Squeak 4.5 but to be fixed.
Tile scripting is particular to Squeak (vs. other Smalltalks) and has
been much improved in Etoys and is the main paradigm there. That is why
Bert suggested it to you. But you can break into Etoys to get the raw
underlying Squeak (Bert would know how).
Back to your Question:
> What would I use Squeak for?
Developing Smalltalk applications of any kind. The whole object
orientation thing was made popular by Smalltalk and the term was coined
by a (the?) Inventor of Smalltalk, Alan Kay. Personally I use projects
as a creativity tool (a drawing beside the code to illustrate what it
does) in my Smalltalk development. And as multiple desktops like Linux
has, just so much more powerful :-))
