Submitted for your approval, the following:

About Squeak in General
             Squeak 2.2
    (c) 1996 Apple Computer, Inc.
     (c) 1997, 1998 Walt Disney

Does anybody know why Mickey's four-fingered paw prints are on it? The
license agreement is strictly Apple and what little is mentioned in the
history of Squeak, does not account for the Disney copyright.

Squeak is currently being ported to a lot of things, particularly small
things. There is a WinCE version and a strong push to put it on the Pilot.
