I like that better, too.

One other point: what would you think of cropping each screen shot to 
eliminate the host OS window frame?

I suggest this for several reasons: it ties Smalltalk less to one platform 
(Windows), it will make the image last longer because it won't look 
outdated when the next version of Windows comes out with new L+F (and 
naturally we're all holding our breath for that ;-), and finally, it 
eliminates that horrid "candy" Windows XP look.

Aside: Vassili Bykov, who does the VisualWorks Tools, told me that when he 
first started up Win XP and saw its shite UI design, he decided then and 
there to switch to Mac OS.
