But we'd have to parse the VM to find out if it was an opensalltalk VM, PyPy VM, Graal VM, SqueakJS VM, Interpreter VM etc.  Are the other VM builders interested in adding info for their VMs?  If we go this route we could also put a pointer to the About Squeak tool in the Help tool.

Perhaps simpler would be a brief paragraph and a pointer to a swiki page where the reader can learn about the variety of possible VMs and further pages for each one? Less to put in the image, easier to update out of band etc etc.
