Thanks very much for your notes.

I was impressed with how fast Squeak compiled. In fact, it was so fast I
thought something was wrong, but there were no error messages and it ran
correctly :-) I shall definitely take a look at the source code, yes.

I thought that I read in the mail archive that there was a MS license. I
must have confused that with something else... an MS license of
Smalltalk, not Squeak itself?

Just out of curiousity, why is CORBA not a good way to accomplish
message passing between objects systems?
