+1. The platform-specific code is quite small compared to the shared code and
the proportion is decreasing over time. Having it all in one directory makes
it easy to carry Squeak on a USB stick and use it on any available machine
regardless of the OS.
On Windows, the risks of malware attacks are high so I create a MD5 checksum
of critical files for detecting modifications. It would be useful if such a file
is included in the download itself.
I don't use Windows much but I found making Squeak a Portable App instead of
installing it to be useful:
