|Unique Scratch Fact: The Scratch
program runs in a very different way
than traditional programs such as Word or Excel. When you
run "Scratch" you
are running a program called "Squeak" with the "Scratch.image."
(I am not making
up!) The result is that the visual environment looks somewhat
different than Windows XP. When you run Scratch and Squeak on different
operating systems (Windows, OS X, Linux) the look and feel of Scratch
remains the same.
