Smalltalk on the XO

January 4, 2010 8:28:53.515

The XO is another name for the OLPC - and it looks like some interesting Smalltalk (Squeak) work is going on to more fully integrate Smalltalk into the environment on that system - check out Milan Zimmerman's work to get Smalltalk hooked up to the activity system - meaning, making it possible to build apps that:

  • Are developed in Etoys (perhaps more precisely, in the underlying Squeak Smalltalk environment).
  • Run in Sugar, allowing interaction with the Datastore.
  • Participates in the Sugar environment, that is, can be saved/resumed in the Sugar Journal, can copy/paste onto a Journal.

Sounds pretty cool.
