Is Smalltalk can be reborn with the modern trend to NVRAM?

Good day

Last few days I’m reading about the libpmem and Intel’s non-volatile memory technology.

And every next chapter I remember the Smalltalk image-based model, especially the GemStone/S with its huge virtual address-space. NVRAM looks native for Smalltalk, but Pharo/CogVM team seems too small to reborn this language.

You can get the book for free temporarily: The Programming Persistent Memory book

Interesting topic… can you give more context? Why Smalltalk should be different in this specific application?
