Seriously, people. TRY IT. Test it out. The differences between Morphic in Squeak/Pharo, and Cuis, are *absolutely* improvements. Juan has sloughed thousands of lines of code. I don't have to work as hard to get a thing done in Cuis, because almost *all* of the bull____ has been cleared away. 

Proof of this is that I was able to do the Pareto 20% of what Polymorph did _in ONE class_. And I'm not really that clever. 

It's undoubtedly the more elegant system I've ever encountered. It might even change the way you think, if you gave it a shot. 

I dare you: try it. 

All the love,
