Fellow Teamers,
disregarding the smiley above, this is actually one discussion we ought to
have. Tomorrow, I'll be heading in harms way for the future focus of R&D at
my company.

I know that there will be discussion about the use of Ada, and perhaps one
argument will be: "In the early 80's, compiler vendors put Mega$ into their
compilers and tools, and they had just about reached maturity in the late
80's. Now that the massive $ are out of Ada, there will never be mature
compilers and tools." Then comes a few unverified rumours that ObjectAda
(or any of the other compilers that I have not personally used recently)
barfs on the third level of generic instantiation, or something.


What's your HtG understanding of the state of the vendors and products?

To what extent does CLAW, ObjectAda and the others match the Delphi and
VC++ on the major platform (i.e. NT in the near future).
