You can play with Squeak by downloading it from Squeak.org. I would recommend to also have a look at a more professional looking and cleaned Squeak like Smalltalk alternative called Pharo (http://www.pharo.org). It is free and open source as well and started as a fork of Squeak a few years ago and has a strong community. It has many projects, frameworks, good documentation and books (see books.pharo.org and http://pharo.pharocloud.com/pharobooks).
Pharo also runs also bit identical on all platforms including the Pi as this video proves:
There is even a Scratch like version called “Phratch” for Pharo which is available at http://www.phratch.com/.
Thanks for the comment and links Torsten. I’ll definitely give Pharo a look over and see if we can’t discuss more about it on the another episode. From what I can tell, it looks very interesting. I like that it’s a language and an environment rolled into one. Thanks for the heads up.
