Erlang achieves Dan Ingalls' Smalltalk goals
Choice in software systems design seems hampered by the scaffolding needed to use shared memory and message passing between threads and processes. Dan Ingalls: "An OS has the things not there in the language. There shouldn't be one.". It was about #Smalltalk but the #Erlang VM seems to solve that, with shared binaries between processes and transparent message-passing across nodes. Maybe your language and database should run on the #BEAM ?
