Hi Michael,

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 :-))
