I just love quotes like this (from the November 1999 issue of Military
& Aerospace Electronics):

"Another problem with replacing all 1553 with Fibre Channel is
software compatibility, says George Meares, vice president of research
and development at VMIC.  Currently there are neither Fibre Channel
devices designed to work with the Ada programming language,, (sic) nor
is there any interest, he adds."

Now, I know of at least one very large program that is developing just
such technology.  Perhaps someone should inform Mr. Meares of this
effort.  Of course, they aren't using VMIC hardware...
