I have downloaded Cincom's non-commercial Smalltalk and am considering learning the language and using it for internal application development. For the past 6 months I have been heavily involved in using Ruby and love its logic, and leanness. Does Smalltalk offer the same power as Ruby, in terms of all of the various extensions and bindings that Ruby offers? Having the ability to utilize GUI toolkits like Qt, Tk, GTK, etc. as well as DBI, SMTP, POP, SSH, HTTP, etc. all have me spoiled I guess
