GNU Smalltalk almost never posts on this list. It's been years. I have 
no idea what they've been up to. I suppose if I read the Planet Squeak 
blog I might know.
The only thing I can remember about GNU Smalltalk is one of the 
developers saying on Squeak-dev that he felt that GNU was maligned by 
other Smalltalks. And that was years ago.

Why do you you make a case for GNU Smalltalk here on Squeak-dev? And 
then tell the people at GNU Smalltalk to post news about themselves here 
on a regular basis? I'm sure something could come up that I could use 
for The Weekly Squeak blog.

I don't know anything about GNU Smalltalk. If they posted here, I hardly 
think it would be unwelcome. But I don't feel it's my responsibility to 
find out what they're up to, either.

Why do you use GNU Smalltalk?
