You made several mistakes:
- You didn't post the source code for #tinyBenchmarks. Do all those 
Smalltalks implement it? Are the implementations equal?
- You didn't specify the version numbers for the VMs used. Or if you built 
them yourself, then the sourcecode + compiler version + configuration 
parameters. Without these your measurements can't be reproduced.
- There are two different Cog VMs. You didn't specify which one did you 
use with Pharo.
- You used a CogVM (JIT) with Pharo but SqueakVM (interpreter) with Squeak 
4.2. What's even worse is that you based your conclusion on this mistake.
- Does #tinyBenchmarks alone give fair performance comparison? Hardly.
