Smalltalk vs. Java

A Java developer answers the question Smalltalk v. Java: Which is More Productive?:

Java is kind of like kindergarten. There are lots of rules you have to remember. If you don't follow them, the compiler makes you sit in the corner until you do. There are 59+ reserved words. Everything is not an object. [...] You have to remember to tell the compiler things several times so it knows what you're talking about (Date date = new Date()).
