This change is driven as much by fashion as anything else. Ada could be revived just by changing its name and providing a large standard library package.

The finance area (investment banks etc.), in which most of my work now is, is slowing jettisoning C/C++, because of the cost (the true, overall cost), in favour of Java and C#.

C and C++ will never be as safe as Ada, which is why it remains the language of choice in embedded and safety-critical arenas.
