I think you will find that OS Process work on mac an Linux and NOT on Windows, but ProcessWrapper does work there.  A test on the OS should let you interchange them well enough to get by.

I need call executable files of OS. I see various options, but I´m not sure.
I believe don´t understand correctly.

I need:

     -Call executable files from system.
     -Call associated programs of links, for example, I could pass
'http://google.com'. The result must be open the default browser of user
with that link.
     -Call commands or .BATs files from OS.
     -I need use that on any OS, must be cross-platform, is very important.

If that is not implemented on Pharo, is possible create a .exe file with
another language, where I call functions of OS, and invoke from Smalltalk
that exe?
