I'd like as well to thank you for your work all these years and in
particular for this report looking back 28 years. Your historical
perspective is very valuable and I hope that the work you are now
going to focus on will be successful.

You say:

" I you can't add simplicity, only complexity."

So to have something simple you have to start from scratch.

I am looking forward to your work on a
"a very simple Smalltalk to run side by side with Squeak in the second
half of 2012"
