Two reasons in my opinion: they don't worry about producing high
quality, high reliability systems and they don't see a mass market ($$)
for Ada. A few months ago a Microsoft rep gave a presentation at the
company where I work. He used the term "robust" often when describing
MS software. I finally asked him to define robust. To him robust was
synonymous with "feature-rich", which isn't the say robust is typically
defined in the control systems domain...
