VisualWorks, Smalltalk VM and image

Cincom Smalltalk's VisualWorks is a rich, portable Smalltalk VM and image suggested to me by Peter Suk as a target VM for porting Ruby. The software installs easily under Windows (well, you need to unpack it yourself and set up the Windows file assocation, but the instructions are clear) and runs beautifully. It makes me wistful for Smalltalk and happy to port Ruby to such a nice environment.
