Ada 2005 GNAT is fast!

The latest fannkuch benchmark results are out, and Ada is doing exceedingly well.

The nearest competitor, which is good old C, is some 30% slower!

For a web-guy like me, it’s interesting to see that PHP is 114 times slower than Ada. Well, at least it’s not as bad as Ruby.

Are there really any good reasons for not using Ada?
