Not too long ago I thought I saw some info about a MSWindows version being offline,
but soon to be restored to disk and made available. Is this still so?

Just wanted to inform others that the smltk.exe expects a floating point
coprocessor. This may not be a problem for those with a 486.

Does anyone know if other, perhaps "tiny" versions of smalltalk exist?
I would like to get a version to run on my HP100LX.

Maybe you should install the emu387 package from the DJGPP distribution of GNU
C++ and put "set go32=emu c:\emu387" in your autoexec.bat. Of course, you
could buy a real co... for about $70 like I did before discovering the secret
of emu387.
