And ADA seems to be pretty much dead.

I don't understand what you guys are arguing about.  Any programmer that I
know who is under 40 only programs in one language: Java.  The under age
40 system administrators that I know can't program in any language unless
you call python a language.

There was one prediction that really went wrong,

    "I don't know what the programming language of 2000 will look like
    but I know it will be called Fortran."
