I always used to complain that the problem with the Ada mandate was the DoD
procurement system. Let's say you are the project manager on a large
software development project for two years. Initial delivery is four years
out. Now you have a choice: Require Ada, and any design problems will be
surfaced on your watch. Choose C, and they show up a year after you are
gone. You have to be crazy to choose Ada under those circumstances.
