Peter Coffee--of PC Week--was an invited speaker during the closing session of TRI-Ada'95; he clearly values Ada. See his Nov. 27 PC Week column "Soft Talk", near the end (four last paragraphs): hard facts confirming what we informally knew and said for years, i.e. that Ada is more cost-effective and more reliable than C. (The unnamed company is Verdix, now part of Rational; the study was described in another TRI-Ada'95 talk; the paper is now available online, see "Comparing Development Costs of C and Ada" by S.F. Zeigler.) The next thing that needs to be widely published is that most people who claim to work with C++ are merely feeding C code to their C++ compilers.
Ada is the industrial-strength programming language for real-time systems and DSP programming. Read about the following experiences: Ada Exceeds Performance Specifications, Ada Beats C, and Ada Rivals Assembly.
There is a series of monographs on commercial applications using Ada around the world.
The AdaIC has also compiled a (non-exhaustive) list of projects (industry, defense, international).
