Alice builds on our experience with developing the Mozart system [MozartProgrammingSystem]. Previous versions of Alice were based on the Mozart VirtualMachine, and Alice programs could interoperate with OzLanguage. Alice 1.0 and later use the SeamVirtualMachine.

<> has some of the OzLanguage examples from ConceptsTechniquesAndModelsOfComputerProgramming transcribed into Alice.

I wish this language had more hype behind it, it has really nice ideas, and could probably even win back the OCaml converts to it's SMLish style.
