This somewhat fits with a message I was preparing to post: I just read an article about four systems for distributed computing that are preparing to compete in this area: Jini from Sun, UP&P from Microsoft, Inferno from Lucent Technologies, and (name forgot) from IBM. (Article alleges that Inferno is technically the best but the worst in marketing--sound familiar?) Here's a chance for an Ada advocate with a good idea to have something ready to run with an emerging technology.
