I don't understand why Ada never took off


1) At the beginning it wasn't very "object oriented" when the fashion for object-orientation was very strong

2) The tools were quite expensive. The DOD should have funded GNAT, much, much earlier.

re: cost... true. I had "free access" to an excellent compiler and even had the pleasure and privilege of working on a VMS component written in Ada. I know the first iteration of Ada was not fully OOP (oop-like) but you could fudge it. Ahhh... I think I still have my Booch book lying around somewhere. ;)
