I think compiler vendors will probably opt for C or C++ instead of Ada.
If a company is devoted to using Ada, like ACT, then a quality product
be achieved.  Why would any company try to get their product right when
the market share is low and not enough revenue is generated to keep the
Ada products alive?

At this point in time I have a wait and see attitude.

Oh well....
