Why am I interested in Smalltalk?

Because it a simple, powerful and beautiful language, which allows me as programmer to change it and adapt it to my needs, in a very simple, straight-forward manner.

Yes, of course. Maybe not making a living out of it, but clearly will keep on doing stuff in smalltalk :)
