Beginners Bugs in Pharo 1.1 on Linux:

In System Browser i choose Tools-Base->Workspace->initization->initialize

and see code

os := (Smalltalk platformName)


I open Shout Workspace, type Smalltalk pl ... and i get 'platformFamily' 
suggested. No 'platformName' offered by Shout completion mode.

And: I cannot choose from other offers in suggestion list by clicking 
with mouse. Why?

Linux Problem?

Next example: In Shout Workspace i enter: TTSampleFontMorph new 
openInWorld. <ALT-P>

I get an error and a ghostframe, that i cannot delete. And: Completion 
mode when i enter TTSample ... does not work. Fuck!

What are you guys thinking of your work on Pharo, e.g. quality testing?

Did you never notice, that even the basics of completion mode in Shout 
Browser are buggy?

Then i open in World Menu: Tools->Filebrowser i get Error:Invalid utf8 
input detected

We need a perfectly running Pharo on Linux/Wine (Ubuntu 9.10). And no, 
no MAC here anywhere in schools in germany.

Can you imagine, that a teacher and his pupils drive mad on such simple 

So i have to teach with SCRATCH or BYOB in class. No serious bugs, no
