why scheme?


I was wondering if anyone would care to put in a nutshell what it is
that distinguishes scheme from other lisps, say, common lisp. I understand
that it's small and memory-efficient, but aside from that...?

Also, is anyone doing any object-oriented stuff with scheme? I currently
favor xlisp (for my Amiga), but I'm interested in looking into what
scheme has to offer, too. Thanks.
