The Ada Resource Association
Ada Embedded Community Surveyed
In a 2002 survey by the independent market research firm VDC, embedded Ada developers named the language's ability to find bugs in compile time as its major benefit. Its nature as an ISO standard and object oriented language were Ada's next important advantages. Almost half of those surveyed believe that Ada reduces a project's costs. VDC's results are available in the .pdf file Ada in Embedded Systems (five pages).
