Hello all.
I am getting really tired and fed up with all the bloatware and stuff that MS is forcing on us programmers in VB.

I develop shareware as a hobby and I want something that is going to allow me to do the following:

1. Develop Windows Applications
2. Be able to connect to databases
3. Modern Graphics & Sound
4. Use 3rd Party Dll's
5. Internet
6. Easy to learn
7. Fast
8. Compact in executable size
9. Generate stand-alone exe's.
10. Stable
11. Supported well
12. Not very expensive

Does this sound like a job for SmallTalk or do I need to keep looking?

Thanks in advance,
