It appears that I accidentally filed off the original posters name and reply
address. Let's try this again...

As the other people here (Ada-Comment) have mentioned, Ada is not dead. See
http://www.adaic.org and http://www.adapower.com for more information on the
state of Ada.
Anyway, this is the wrong forum for this question. This mailing list is for
questions and proposals about the Ada standard itself. General questions on
the usage of Ada aren't appropriate here; they should be directed to the
team-ada mailing list ([log in to unmask], to which I've forwarded this
message) or to the comp.lang.ada newsgroup.
