I completely agree that Pharo still has a lot of usability issues BUT in the
same breath I also acknowledge that there already have been some big
improvements since Pharo's inception!

The cluttered windows and odd default sizes and positions, no top menu etc
do look a bit strange.  Another common usability issue is that buttons are
often used even when a button really is not the appropriate control.
