This strikes me as patently false, along with your statement that C
obviously costs less to develop than Ada.  I would say in my experience, C
costs less up to a couple hundred lines of code.  Beyond this, I have found
myself far more productive in Ada than I ever was/would have been in C.

I suppose it is probable that I had executables far sooner in C, but I
certainly have *working* ones far sooner in Ada.

There is a higher cost-overrun risk using Ada than using C, C++ or Java,
due to the extra work done to generate the Ada code.  A good development
process will help lower the risk, but not get rid of it.
