Squeak is open source. Each contributor, or in the case of employees
within the scope or work made for hire contractors, the entity
commissioning the contribution, owns their independent contributions,
subject to the Squeak-L license agreement.
Frankly, I can't help and give no credit to loonies who would pick or
eschew a programming language because of an imputed political evil
associated with an imputed "owner." The person clearly is clueless
about the details of Squeak, its history and the applicable law of title
to a copyright.
Just ignore this. The person is either a language bigot who couldn't
discern a better excuse to pan Smalltalk, or nuts.
