I disagree. It is quite important issue about Ada: is that language alive enough
and can it survive outside of the big corporations? Yes, it is a non-technical
question, but
>this is Team-Ada :)
So, some aspects of corporate vs. academic vs. freelance behavior are at least
loosely relevant.

As a person that was born and rose in socialistic environment (Soviet), and
moreover, witnessed its flourishing, stagnation, and collapse, I want to add
several words:

I think that there is enough "leftist" in the principal GPL approach, although
not exactly "socialistic". The GPL incorporates what is common in the academic
view and socialistic view.

>Anti-corporate is neither anti-property nor anti-American.
Surely. As many symptoms suggest, the big corporations are substantially
socialistic internally.
