Squeak inherits the original ST-80 three button mouse. PenSqueak is the generic name for experiments in moving Squeak from the current dominant keyboard/mouse interface to a voice/pen interface.
Our number one commitment is to an exquisite personal computing environment. Imagine a system as immediate and tactile as a sketch pad, in which you can effortlessly mingle writing, drawing, painting, and all the structured leverage of computer science. - Dan Ingalls, PlaceInTheUniverse
