As you might imagine, guy over at comp.lang.ada didn't like this all to much. Read what they had to say, and the letter to the editor.

I haven't read the article yet, but the quote above is contrary to what I experience. Esp. as regards costs (GNAT is a great compiler, and free) and innovation (see the JVM compilers, free code available on the Net, etc. etc.)
