I wish people would use the term xtalk when refering to this language its structure and lexicon both come intact from hypercard and smalltalk before that. Revenue is a great integration synthesis of xtalk and a cross platform runtime engines, but the language is xtalk all the way in. Seems only fair. No?

Revolution is like Jehovah Witnesses. Made up of a relatively small
albeit stable and friendly community of followers and controlled by a
small company Revolution somehow resists the power of mainstream beliefs
with large evil corporations behind. Although well known for its
pacifistic attitudes, it cherishes a hope since the very establishment
that this evil World is moving to the end, and the Revolution is going
to dominate the New World soon. Believing the God's name has to be
written and pronounced using rules of the English language, its
followers read and interpret the Scripts literally. However this might
have raised some doubts about the trustworthiness of the word about
Revolution because of experiences caused by diverse national, linguistic
and religious identities. The partisans of Revolution strongly believe
that many dogmas and assumptions of mainstream religions are incorrect
interpretations, bad habits and even superstitions. Meanwhile adherents
of the mainstream religions usually look at revolutionists "from above".
However the later tend to became converted after just a few days of
"hands on" experience with Revolution.
sorry, I could not resist to write one more, as it was also missing from
the original list of languages :-)
Assembly - the language in which the Universe has been created. Mastered
only by the God himself. Currently known and used by ascended beings or
inspired humans, and unfortunately, also demons and dark mags. While the
former can do miracles with it, the dark side adherents use their
knowledge to corrupt the World.
