Witness the continuing crappage.
If Sun had gone with Smalltalk rather than Java, where would they be now?
If Microsoft had gone with Smalltalk instead of C#, or way back in the 1990's when they could have forged something with Digitalk instead of their long and winding DCOM fiasco.
If IBM had simply *stuck* with Smalltalk instead of jumping to Java.
The head spins.
What if the Momenta management team had been competent?
