    Help! Which Smalltalk version

    Hello, I am interested in learning Smalltalk. But there are so many versions I don't know which is the best one to learn. I need advice for the best and most current version to learn that has enough support. Please let me know, thank you very much for your help.

    Because I heard its the easiest programming language to learn. Does a lot of things with a lot less code.

    It's a language developed to be a teaching language, like Pascal was.

    I suppose, with my super-limited knowledge of Smalltalk, I'd recommend you check out Squeak... I say this because it's actively being developed, meaning there's likely an active community around it.

    When choosing a language to learn, the community around it is pretty important, for support, added learning, etc.

    You're probably not going to find anyone around here. I'd go snooping through ST/squeak mailing lists to see what people are saying about it.
