As your wrote in the part I deleted, Scamper and Safari might have the
same function but aren't at the same level of usability. Perhaps adding
a score would make the list more interesting.
Sometimes a direct one to one comparison won't show us where the real
opportunities for Squeak lie. For example, a direct Excel replacement
wouldn't be nearly as interesting as something very simple that could
also replace the SuperCalculator and MathCAD.
