The world on the edge of a nuclear disaster

The programming language used in nuclear technologies (nuclear bombs and power plants, for example) is Ada.

Ada is developed by AdaCore, a small corporation.

Ada is developed to be a very reliable programming language, to be suitable to control nuclear weapons and similar things. But there is an awful quantity of bugs in the compiler (GNAT) of this language. So the world is kept from a nuclear disaster only by prayers.

AdaCore uses to fix bugs only for paid customers. I reported a number of bugs long time ago and they are not yet fixed.

Why AdaCore corporation behaves this way? I think, because it is a small corporation and can survive only behaving this way. If they would start to behave “properly”, they would probably bankrupt and make nuclear situation even worse.

What to do with this world? It is related to this message from Christ.
