Hi Chris.. working nicely here on OSX leopard. About this System reports:

Virtual Machine
Squeak3.8.1 of '28 Aug 2006' [latest update: #6747] 4.2

I'm all for shipping the newest shiniest VM available for mac folks, let's get the VM maintainers' hard work out to the 

Cog would be fastest, I'm guessing you deem it not yet tested enough or with enough plugins.

Esteban's seems to work here and looks a little faster:

Virtual Machine
Pharo-1.1.1-- of 12 September 2010 [Latest update: #11414] 21.0
Mac Cocoa 5.7b3 27-Aug-10 >7BCAB029-A835-4D12-946D-4AB7083D2955<
VMMaker versionString 4.4.9

Tiny Benchmarks

Other notes about Esteban's VM:

- it's got "Pharo" in the version string.

- it seems free of the slight menu item unhighlighting delay I reported - better display updating code ?

- it's got more standard system menus, including the quit command in the right place. It still doesn't obey the 
command-Q key though (Cog does.)

- it looks 64-bit image ready, which I guess the old vm is not.
