Regarding Mike Feldman's inquiry about copies of AppletMagic
and ObjectAda ...

and this should include RR Software's CLAW product,

I noticed that Aonix was quite agressive in promoting ObjectAda at
the recent Software Development Conference in San Francisco.  Also,
I talked to people who attended the Aonix demos and they were generally
quite impressed.  One man was ready to convert to ObjectAda until he
learned he would have to give up Windows 3.1 to do do.

The editors of the Windows magazines are looking forward to submissions
that solve windowing problems using Ada, whether it be Aonix'x ObjectAda
or RR Software's CLAW.

One odd thing I am noticing is the growing disenchantment with C++. Many
developers are moving to Visual Basic or Java to get away from C++.
C++ is the peanut brittle of programming languages.  It tastes so sweet,
at first. Then it gums up your teeth and causes rampant decay, just the
way C++ rots away that shiny new program you wrote last year.
