+1.  It's really great to get feedback from the *USER* side!  Feedback
from someone who does not consider themself a coder is GOLD for those
who do to understand what is important for true users of Etoys.  You
are a quintessential member of the group I've advocated for in squeak-dev
on a continuing basis, thanks!  :-)   My only question is, does Bert
or someone understand what you mean by "other than the Etoys scriptor
needing to be in text rather than tile," and, is that an easy fix we
could still get into 5.2?

>> I just gave the latest beta 5.2 a look last night and I'm rather psyched about work that's been done. I personally am not a 'coder', I don't like 'writing' code, etc. and so I've been mostly using the Etoys distribution as it allows me to get straight into the visual and motion design work that I'm actually interested in. I had heard that Etoys was going to be merged back into squeak, making the eye halo actually feel logical to even be included again and when I tried version 5.0 a while back, it was still largely under construction/on the to-do list. However last night, other than the Etoys scriptor needing to be in text rather than tile, I was very very happy and impressed at the same time and I just wanted to thank everyone who's work and contributions towards this goal has gotten it to this point now. Even if for some extremely unlikely reason that Squeak dev completely stopped tomorrow morning, what is there is already nice.
