Yes, it does speak volumes about the language: Smalltalk is as close to the perfect programming language as you will ever find. After all these years, people see little reason to make big changes to the language; you don’t tinker with perfection.

Smalltalk is well worth evangelizing because it deserves great public attention. After all, this is a language that has been commercially used for over three decades.

Smalltalk is one of the most productive languages in the world, more so than Python or Ruby.
