That's true. But Ada insists that domain expertise must be at hand from the
very beginning of a project, as a prerequisite - that is, Ada do not forgive
those who need a learning curve in the domain area during the program development.
With C/C++ the situation is different - without prior domain expertise (but
with generally good programmers) you are likely get significant delay of the
project and uncertain quality of the code, but not an inevitable crash as it
probably would be with Ada.
  So for those who fear that they can't support the project from its very
beginning with good domain expertise, the choice in favour of C++ may be indeed
justified.
