Sun Rise or Sun Set?
29 December, 2006
Was Sun deciding between using Smalltalk and writing Java? This question was reciently raised on Squeak-Dev. Eric Clayburg, V.P. of Development at ParcPlace-Digitalk in 1996, recalls discussions from that time.
This discussion raises many questions about what might have been. The real question is where is Smalltalk going. I will be writing a few articles on this subject comming up trying to answer the question: Is the sun rising or setting on Smalltalk?
