This time in Squeak 4.6, released in July, 2015 (4.0 was released in March, 2010). It’s 32-bit, so I had a bunch of libraries to install into a container before I could get this going.

And another, this time in Squeak 3.9, released in Mar, 2008 (3.0 was released in June, 2001). I quite like the Unix-like handles on the corners of the windows, and the same handles for resizing splits.

Once again, now in Squeak 2.8, released in August, 2000 (2.0 was released in May, 1998). Now I know where the assortment of window border colours came from! This seems to be the last version to use the eponymous MVC-based user interface. I love left-hand scrollbars. Morphic is available as a preview. No unit testing classes.

I would have liked to have also taken a look at versions 1.1–1.3 tonight but I can’t find versions of the VM which both compile and are compatible with the image formats. 😤

@amdt man, these screenshots look really... of their time? in an amusing reinterpretation though. 2.8 looks like plan 9 or even ancient suntools if you squint, and 3.9 has kind of a microsoft office feel

@libc Yes! I’m a little surprised at just how contemporaneous each interface feels despite having only minor changes in look and feel. Ironically, the modern Smalltalk, Pharo, feels like I’m using Windows 2000, or Microsoft Office 2003 (I think it’s all the small icons and tabs).
