You have to moderate any conclusions from the survey by considering that respondents are self-selecting. With respect to Ada, maybe all the Ada developers in sensitive military applications are not allowed to give out the kind of information asked for in the survey. Note that the numbers add-up to greater than 100%, so while 45% of developers use some C++, they may only use it for a small percentage of their work. On the other hand, C++ lends itself to larger applications so as a volume of code, maybe it is higher than you expect. My C++ usage is nearer 95%, currently also on Cortex-M3.
