  Probably not, but:

      1) I do have readers of my JOOP column on Ada at Microsoft. There
         may not be a corporate interest, but there are interested

      2) It is my understanding that ObjectAda was not named VisualAda
         because Microsoft owns the name.  Are they simply hedging their
         bets? :-)
