Hi Craig

Was my question too obscure?  What I meant was do you think there will
be new software projects using Ada 5, 10, 20 years from now?  Also, do
you think there will be more or fewer Ada compiler and tool suppliers?

Take care,

It seems that some of the defects in Ada need to remain even though
they could be removed. However features seem to be easier to add.
