How many other Schemes out there would be considered "leading products" or "principal competition?" I will define this as Scheme communities that are larger than Chicken, with more developers and mindshare. It seems like the list might be:

- PLT Scheme
- Gambit Scheme

Anyone think there's another Scheme worth adding?

Now personally, I think the biggest source of Chicken's growth would come from developers who are not using Scheme, rather than poaching other Scheme developers. There's simply tons more non-Schemers out there. So the experience of the first-time Scheme user is very important. But I think it's also important to look at why other Scheme communities are larger than Chicken, and what the Chicken community can learn from that.

I'm told that Gambit has been ported to the Nintendo DS hand-held game console.
