We're working hard to correct that problem, but as is readily apparent, we
still have some work to do!  :-)

You're 100% right.  The best thing about this is that there's some
excitement in Ada again.  And some healthy competition will be good for ALL
of us in the Ada community, not just Rational, or Aonix, or ACT, or ...

It's fun to be in Ada these days!

Right now, we're sticking to 32-bit Windows, but there is plenty of activity
by others in the DOS Ada business.  So just because we aren't there doesn't
mean you can't use Ada on DOS.
