Free and Ada don't really go together. Oddly, I find myself in the position of building Ada tools recently. We have only three kinds of customers - the US military, who would rather pay for it and get support than use something free - large European industrial firms, who are just like the military - and Russian groups, who are happy to use systems that were developed for the US military with taxpayer funds, and got into the public domain. There is no point developing things to make the third group happy because you get no good will points from them.

For other products, we often do open source versions. For Ada, our best choice is to charge a large, but not obscene price.

Disclaimer: I've never really used it - my Ada IDE is called Emacs + Bash... [Smile]
