VisualWorks: CE support dropped

Ok, in 7.7 of VisualWorks the support of the CE virtual machine has been dropped. I think after the hype to get VW running at all under such a machine it took quite a time to realize, that the GUI stuff of VW is too difficult or the machine were not powerful enough.

On the other hand, CE machines are not that interesting any more and attracting to users – all love IPhone now ;.)))

Said to say, but the decision is right … perhaps another Smalltalk with a much better GUI would be perhaps better for CE ….
