Processing 1.0, the open source programming language and environment and others.
Google "Processing" and take a look at what I'm talkin' about.
Since I use OpenBSD on my laptop, and I don't want to run the Java Virtual Machine due to their policy and copyright issues. I'm curious if anyone else out there has found something similar that works well on OpenBSD.
I hear there's "impromptu", which is absolutely gorgeous and beautiful! It's going to bring Scheme back in a big way. Time get on that SmallTalk train! But, it's just for OS X from what I know.
I just wanted to bring this up if anyone's got any suggestions let me know. Things are going to get very interesting in the near future.
