There was a professor at the University here who had the two Mark  
Guzdial Squeak books on her shelf when I went to work on her computer,  
roughly two years ago.  I struck up a conversation about Squeak.  I  
knew already that she didn't teach Squeak in any courses here.  She  
said Squeak was very neat, but "very buggy."  She found it hard to get  
anything done because she "kept running into bugs."  She sounded as if  
she considered it something of a shame.
