My read on OpenCobalt was that it was not a fork, but a complete replacement. The consortium was effectively saying "we're the big guys now, and we're going to do this right..." It is fascinating to see that Smalltalk won out. I still don't like the compiler changes: never do _to_ the language what you can do _using_ the language. Well, ok, there are exceptions such as primitives, but Tea really should be an event/announcement system made from ordinary objects (including some weaklings, of course).
I also do not care for the forced 3D immersion idea. Their code for handling 3D objects was gorgeous, at least when I last looked. They also appear to have tried to separate some of it for use by other projects. I need to dig into that. Hopefully it's the same stuff, but embeddable in a traditional desktop app.
Minor disagreements aside, I wish them well with it, and I'm thrilled to see Smalltalk back on the job :)

Yes, I know OpenCobalt and I thought of it as a fork.
According to the wikipedia page  (which only links to Croquet)
it sits on top of the Croquet SDK. Similar to the Krestianstvo SDK.
However - would be nice if http://www.opencroquet.org
would point also to
- http://www.opencobalt.org and
if anyone knows a person who is able to change the page.
