Dynamic Languages on the the Desktop

Ted's looking for examples of popular (for some definition of popular)
desktop applications written in dynamic languages...

Certainly emacs.

I've used several Smalltalk desktop applications over the years. The
one perhaps most in the mainstream would be James Robertson's Bottom
Feeder.

There are a number of Adobe AIR applications available now.

Would this also include AJAX applications like gmail? Certainly gmail
is popular.
