This is awesome! :-). I'm amazed that computers are fast enough to run
this on a FULL image these days!!!

It runs kind of okay on my 3.11 Linux VM. There seems to be a font
problem; the workspace isn't drawing any text, although you can select
it where text is meant to be. Also event handling is a bit odd; the VM
doesn't seem to react even though CPU usage on the machine is near 0%.

Are you willing to tidy this up enough for putting on e.g.
ftp.squeak.org? I think this image is a great asset! It needs:

* You don't need the "package-cache", "sm" and "cs" directories. All
that stuff is in the image already.
* You can delete SqueakDebug.log.
* I don't know what the file .DS_store is, but its optional too.
* There's a halt in InterpreterSimulator>>lookupMethodInClass:

If you aren't willing to do this, I'll see if I can find free time this week.
