A recent post to gnatlist mentioned a new pro-Ada article in the
December 2000 issue of Linux journal.  I bought a copy today so I could
read "Elegance of Java and the Efficiency of C++ --- It's Ada!" by Frode
Tennebo.  It's a brief but very nice article that gives an overview of
Ada and presents the results of a benchmark program compiled with GNAT
3.13p and JGNAT 1.0p to corresponding C++ and Java programs.

However there is a "Resources" sidebar that lists as the primary reference URL for Ada along with
several Ada vendor URLs.  It does not include URLs for either AdaPower
or AdaIC sites. As most of you know, AdaHome hasn't been updated in
almost two years (last update was Jan 3, 1999) and many of the links are
now broken.  While AdaHome still has some good materials, AdaIC and
AdaPower are much better sites to tell new Ada users about. Does anyone
know what happened to Magnus Kempe and why he has let AdaHome become so
stale?  If he isn't interested in maintaining the site could he be
convinced to have the AdaHome main page automatically redirect visitors
to either AdaIC, AdaPower, or the ACM SIGAda site?
