Why Smalltalk?

I saw this on my Facebook news feed, from a happy user of VisualWorks:

From my perspective, Smalltalk (in the form of VisualWorks) is the perfect vehicle for exploratory programming. The latest incarnation of my program tests competing theories and allows me to make choices of what to use, based on recent history.

That's how I've always seen VW. I usually start out with a few lines of script in a workspace, migrate to a class or two, and build up from there. The immediate feedback is what sets Smalltalk apart.
