I think, this explanation is exactly for me (because I live on Pluto), thanks.

Certainly, for you, as a participant of the Ada Marketing, it would be better
if Ada language becomes widespread.
But I cannot understand the majority of Ada-Teamers who permanently and
loudly dream about the times when Ada will be used more often then C/C++ and
even Visual Basic. Do they really want to test Ada language immunity against
the wild forces of non-restricted world? Do they want a Microsoft Ada (with
Microsoft-only extensions)? Do they want "Ada for Dummies" and "Ada in 21 Day"
books to be published? ...Perhaps, I missed something important, looking at
all those discussions from my Pluto.
